We Need Competition Committee Volunteers!

We are making plans for the WDCB 2016-2017 Technical Communication competition. We have a new competition manager, Richard Bogacz . Richard is looking for new volunteers who would like to help with this year’s competition.

The first position we need to fill is the entries manager, because we need to set up an entries mailing address for the opening announcement and flyers. Opening day will be 8 August 2016 and the deadline for entries is 21 October 2016.
