Join or Renew STC Now

STC membership is based on a calendar year. All memberships expire on 31 December. Individuals joining STC for the first time (or former members whose membership has lapsed more than one year) pay Society dues, a $15.00 enrollment fee, and chapter and SIG fees (if applicable). Because the full range of STC products and services is available to members immediately upon joining or renewing, STC dues are nonrefundable.

Note: Your dues may be tax deductible. For information, see

Join or Renew your STC membership today to continue receiving exclusive benefits such as the member rate for the 2018 Summit in Orlando, Florida (STC's annual conference and exposition).

We encourage you to add the Washington, DC – Baltimore Chapter as your home chapter or in addition to other chapters and SIGs you may join. Why should you join STC and the Washington, DC – Baltimore Chapter? The Washington, DC – Baltimore Chapter offers many opportunities to network with others in your field such as First Friday Lunches, InfoDecDC Meetups, Happy Hours, and other chapter events. You can explore your interests and expand your education and skills by attending webinars, TC Summer Camp, and participating in chapter committees and our technical communication competition.

Stephanie Sweet Conlan Says Why She Renewed Her STC Membership

April 13, 2014, "The reason I re-joined STC this week was because I saw (and applied for) a job on the STC jobs board." — Stephanie Sweet Conlan (in a Facebook message)

Thanks for rejoining, Stephanie, and thanks for letting us know why. We hope your job search goes well.

We'd like to hear from others about why they renewed their STC membership and why they joined the Washington, DC-Baltimore Chapter or a SIG. We'd also like to hear from those who didn't renew or renewed but dropped out of the chapter. We like to know what we are doing right and how we can improve to keep you interested and happy.

Access to the STC Jobs Board is just one benefit for being an STC member. For more benefits of being an STC member, see STC Membership Benefits. The Washington, DC-Baltimore chapter also has a Jobs Board where members may look for local job announcements and also post their résumés. Go to the WDCB Jobs Board now to see new announcements posted this week and to add your résumé.
