The Awards Celebration is rescheduled to March 12

Competition Winner badge - 2014 164x208If you missed the Eventbrite message from last night, our Facebook posting, and our tweets on Twitter, we have rescheduled the Awards Celebration and 60th Anniversary Kickoff one week. Thanks to the predicted heavy snow and ice late Wednesday through Thursday evening, March 5, the new date is March 12.

Message sent by Eventbrite to all registered attendees:

A Message from STC Washington, DC – Baltimore Chapter:

As you may be aware, we are expecting yet another major snow event this Wednesday night and Thursday, with Thursday having record low temperatures for the date, making conditions for getting around our area treacherous. See

As a result, we are rescheduling our awards celebration for Thursday, March 12, same time, same place.

If you cannot make the new date, please reply to let us know and we will reimburse you.

Thank you for your understanding.


Let Carolyn know if you cannot make the new date.

Hopefully, warmer Spring weather will soon be here.

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!
