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!
