STC WDCB Chapter Social Media Update: Meetup

Hello STC WDCB! Here’s a bit of exciting news about our Meetup group. We will be closing our Meetup group soon.

That might not sound too exciting at first. We know.

Here’s what’s exciting: We will be throwing our full support to a new Meetup Group, InfoDevDC, organized by our own Becky Todd for all our Meetup needs. InfoDevDC’s first meetup featured past STC president, Alan Houser, and InfoDevDC is planning a series of great #TechComm events in the area. We want to support them in every way possible.

And don’t forget, you can continue to find all our news about events and happenings through our other online resources, including this Events and News blog.

First Friday Lunch (Gourmet Deli in Linthicum, MD)

Who doesn’t love a hot sandwich? 700 South is a gourmet deli near BWI in Linthicum with a huge selection of sandwiches and leafy green salads to satisfy your lunch cravings. We’re meeting there for our September First Friday lunch because we have a fabulous new volunteer, Renae Borzatti, who works nearby. Baltimore-area technical communicators, come on down! As always, this lunch will be a great opportunity to meet folks in similar careers and share tips that will strengthen your career.

Ideas and Notes from STC WDCB Summer Vision Day 2014

Here is the recording from the STC WDCB Summer Vision Day 2014 meeting:

During the meeting, we asked members to post ideas and needs for future events. Please use our WDCB website as a forum for sharing ideas.

  • What kinds of events would you like to see in the coming months?
  • What kinds of topics should we cover?
  • For what kinds of speakers should we look?

We asked to hear from you, the membership, and we mean it. What’s on your mind? What do you need?

Please share your thoughts here.

Let’s Do Lunch (Fuddrucker’s in Columbia)

Columbia, Maryland and environs, we’re coming to you! Although we’ve chosen what is nominally a hamburger joint, plenty of options exist for non-hamburger eaters. Just check out their menu. What works for us is that you can order and pay for your own lunch (sorry, no free lunch) at the counter and then come and join us at a table. These First Friday Lunches are great opportunities to connect with your peers in the technical communication profession. It’s a casual lunch, so no need to come dressed for a job interview, but we do hope that one day your network will get you your next great job.

Our host this month is Ruth Frost, so ask for her at the restaurant host stand. You can be a lunch host, too. Just email hidden; JavaScript is required you are interested in getting a group together near you and we’ll do the rest.

Although each of us will pay towards the tab and there’s no other cost to pay here on EventBrite, RSVP so that we know how large of a table to reserve.

Hope you can make it!

STC WDCB Summer Vision Day 2014

This year our annual Vision Day meeting is COMPLETELY ONLINE. It is an opportunity for chapter leaders and current chapter members to work together to plan the new season of professional activities that begins in September. We have two goals: 1) to solicit new ideas from our members, and 2) to report on the current state of the chapter. We will also discuss our website, social media, finances, and upcoming deadlines for award applications. What programs would you like to see? Would you like to get more involved? Join us and let us know!
