  • 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?

Let’s do lunch 08/30/2013

Hey everyone! I was delighted to attend "Let’s do lunch" with some of our STC Washington, DC – Baltimore Chapter local crew.

For me, it meant a day away from the office and an 80 mile drive there and an 80 mile drive back. It was totally worth it.

We met at the Good Stuff Eatery in Crystal City, Virginia.

Our little group included Technical Communicators from all around DC, Virginia, and Maryland, including Charlotte Glenn, Traci Mayo, Leslie Reed, Anna Reed, Frank Sokolove, Carolyn Klinger, Steven Lemanski, Sean Stevenson, Joni Vredenburgh, Nicole, and me. The lively discussion covered a variety of topics, technical and not-so-technical, including our chapter jobs board, proposal writing, gamification, Office 360, future events, facilities management with Maximo, and ghosts in the area.

Sean was celebrating his new job and we marked the occasion by giving him some of our chapter logo swag.
