Planning for the 2021 Technical Communication Summit is now underway. STC is excited to announce some changes to the coming year's Summit that will allow us to expand the reach of the Summit to participants outside of North America.

STC is committed to providing its participants with a robust conference experience both onsite and virtually. We are looking for speakers to present their knowledge, findings, and expertise at the 2021 Summit. The 2021 Call For Proposals is now open!

On 8 September 2020 at 4:00 PM EDT, the Conference Committee co-chairs will host a webinar focused on preparing a Summit session proposal entitled "How to Submit a Summit Session Proposal." Register for the webinar by submitting the webinar registration form.

STC plans to offer both onsite and virtual programs in 2021. The onsite Summit will take place Sunday, 6 June – Wednesday, 9 June in Atlanta, GA. The virtual event will offer a smaller set of live sessions during the same time period.

With the current unprecedented times, we realize that some of our members may not feel comfortable traveling onsite to the 2021 Summit. We ask that you please participate in our short survey below so that we can get an idea of how many members are interested in joining us face-to-face. Please complete the survey by 15 September 2020.
