Congratulations to chapter member, Carolyn Kelley Klinger, who is a newly elected Associate Fellow of STC. Carolyn joined STC in 1995 and has been an active volunteer for the STC Washington, DC chapter since 1998. She is a two-time past president of the STC Washington, DC Chapter and has held all the chapter’s Administrative Council roles and served on most of its committees. She is an enthusiastic booster of STC, speaking often to schools and professional groups about the benefits of the profession.

Carolyn has served the Society by acting as one of its representatives to the Bureau of Labor Statistics during STC’s recent successful bid for inclusion of technical communication in the Occupational Outlook Handbook. She served a two-year term on the STC Nominating Committee and is now serving on the Intercom Advisory Committee and STC Membership Committee.

We are extremely proud of Carolyn and all that she does for the chapter and the Society. Congratulations!
