#TCCamp is only 4 weeks away

Greetings STC Member!

The 2nd annual TC Summer Camp, the techcomm unconference, is coming up in 4 weeks!

What’s an unconference?

It’s an intense day of learning that’s totally relevant to you! Sessions topics are defined by the attendees on the day of the event. There are no presenters, no juried presentations. Instead, you can join together with other like-minded people to discuss topics that interest you!

We start the day with a selection of 2-hour workshops which are run by techcomm luminaries and are designed to get your thinking going, first thing in the morning. After the workshops, the unconference begins! We start with an overview of how it all works, followed by a keynote, lunch, and unconference topic voting. In the afternoon are the unconference sessions, followed by a session wrap-up and raffle!

What hands-on workshops do we have lined up this year?

All this for only $35 (including lunch)!

TC Summer Camp is a day of unmatched, intense, learning, sharing, and networking for techcomm professionals. This is a great opportunity to get information on the latest trends and technologies, learn how your colleagues solve problems, and have a focused discussion with your tool vendor about important issues.

Join us Saturday, September 9, 2017 at the District Architecture Center in downtown Washington DC. This is YOUR TC Camp!
