Seeking 2016-2017 STC WDCB Competition Manager

Do you want to hone your project management skills as our competition manager for later this year? Whether or not you have served as a project manager before, you can learn and grow in this role.

Our competition is respected worldwide and has been continuing each year for 50 years now. We don’t have a competition manager for the fall and we don’t want this to be the year that we stop!

It helps if you have some familiarity with the competition to take on this role but it is not required. You can learn on the job. This job will take 5-10 hours per week between October and January but there are some start-up tasks that will take a little time here and there in September. You will need to oversee but not necessarily handle recognition tasks after January until the competition celebration, which ends the cycle.

To volunteer or to discuss the role, contact Carolyn Kelley Klinger.

Celebrating Our Community; Celebrating YOU

One of the great things about being part of a community is the opportunity to celebrate our successes and honor the best work among us. For our chapter, that opportunity is right around the corner, as we gather on March 5 to honor our Competition winners, recognize members through a new chapter award program, and mark a special milestone — our 60th birthday as an STC chapter.

But perhaps most important, we celebrate YOU — technical communicators whose skills and accomplishments, born of hard work and dedication, have strengthened our profession and made this remarkable community possible. Every one of you is a guest of honor at this party — and the more of you with us on March 5, the better!

This year’s celebration is special to me, because I will be flying across the country to attend for the first time since having joined the chapter. As a remote volunteer, I rejoice at the opportunity to meet the incredible leadership team I have worked with for more than a year. And I’m thrilled to be able to see the recipients of our new chapter awards program be honored.

March 5 promises to be a wonderful evening of fun, great food, the joy of honoring our best work, and celebrating our strengths as a community and the contributions that YOU make to our profession. Be with us! Register today!

I look forward to meeting you there!
