STC Membership Renewals & Recruiting New Members

STC logo with logotype

Note: The STC website (http://stc.org) is currently down or very slow because it is being hit with frequent Denial of Service (DoS) attacks. Why the STC website? Who knows—because it is there, we guess. If you are attempting to renew your membership or make an education purchase, STC will be happy to process those transactions for you over the phone. Please get in touch with STC membership at email hidden; JavaScript is required or by calling 703-522-4114. (Phone calls are best because sometimes mail to @stc.org bounces as an unknown domain name during these DoS attacks.)

To renew your STC membership, please use this direct link. (https://access.stc.org/prod/ICommerce/Home/ICommerce/)

Recruit a new member to STC and win!

Member get a Member badge

With STC’s 2015 membership season now open, Member Get a Member (MGAM) is in full swing. Every time you recruit a new member, you strengthen STC. That means greater recognition of technical communicators, improved educational and networking opportunities for members, and the advancement of the profession. Reach out and recruit new members and you will be entered in a drawing to win prizes such as a GoPro Camera, a Kindle Fire, and more. Ask your recruits to call 703-522-4114 and mention your name.
