Member Benefits

STC is the organization that brings all parties involved in the technical communication profession together. STC is the voice for the profession. STC creates a climate where technical communicators are valued—and hired—for their expertise. This past year, STC’s work with the Bureau of Labor Statistics resulted in a separate chapter for technical writers in the Occupation Outlook Handbook, an essential reference document for corporations. This means for the first time the BLS has acknowledged technical writers are distinct from other writers.
