By Martin Wall, Membership Director, STC Carolina Chapter

Thank you to all our valuable members for making 2018 a great year! We hope to serve you better with more exciting events and workshops for 2019.

2018 memberships have expired and it is now time to renew your member for 2019. Our STC chapter continues to provide customized and one-of-a-kind Technical Communication events to the Triangle Tech Comm community. Here is a roundup of what we did in 2018, what you can look forward to in 2019, and how you can benefit by being a STC Carolina Chapter member:

  • New events and speakers: Our monthly events provide you a great opportunity to meet new people, network with peers in the field, and learn new skills. In 2018, we hosted a variety of monthly events and social events directed at learning and networking opportunities.
  • Mentorship: We have a dedicated Mentoring Committee and a Mentoring Program to help new Technical Communicators with one-on-one assistance in the field of Technical Communication. In 2018, we conducted two separate mentoring events and are hoping to continue that in the coming years.
  • Annual TC showcase: Our annual Technical Communication Competition serves as a platform to showcase your expertise and knowledge in the area of Technical Communication. It is also a great way to learn and develop your skills by volunteering as a judge for the competition and by being a part of the best of show judging.
  • Blog: We are proud to be serving the community with the STC Carolina Blog, your link to local and national STC events, professional development opportunities, and thought pieces about all things Tech Comm. We always welcome members—experts, new professionals, and students alike—to submit an article to be published! Sign up for our announcements so that you never miss a TC event!
