The first position we need to fill is the entries manager, because we need to set up an entries mailing address for the opening announcement and flyers. Opening day will be 8 August 2016 and the deadline for entries is 21 October 2016.
On 9 January 2016, consensus judging for the Washington, DC – Baltimore Chapter's Technical Communication Competition was held at Arlington County Central Library in Arlington, VA; one judging team with some remote team members (for example, in California), participated in a teleconference consensus meeting. Eighteen technical communication professionals evaluated thirty-three entries and determined awards. Entries to our competition this year came from California, Colorado, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Rhode Island, Virginia, Tennessee, Texas, Czech Republic, Israel, Italy, and the UK. Thank you to all judges and committee members who participated in the judges training and consensus.
