On 21 March 2014, Christopher Ward (@WebWorksChris) and Bernard Aschwanden (@aschwanden4stc) gave a presentation to our chapter on "Evolution of the Knowledge Broker: Trading your content for revenue". The slides from the presentation are now available on our Speakers' Handouts and Presentations page: Evolution of the Knowledge Broker slides (52 pages .pdf).
When available, handouts and presentations from previous chapter events may be downloaded from the Speakers' Handouts and Presentations page.
Many thanks to everyone who participated in our Virtual Town Hall meeting on January 25, 2012. The webinar provided a good opportunity for us to reconnect, celebrate the accomplishments of the past year, and get excited about the opportunities before us in the coming year.
Speaker Presentations and Handouts
Among the highlights of the presentation were:
The group had a few lively discussions about what STC offers to our members, especially the grant from IBM, potential locations for future meetings (come to the wineries in Virginia's Shenandoah Valley), and the STC job bank.
The group expressed a desire to give support to our local student affiliates. Tiffany Newland will be attending the JMU Student Chapter Meeting in February and suggested that we send her ideas and information about events that would appeal to students at the undergrad or graduate level. Email Tiffany at tnewland at woodmark.com.
Many thanks to some of the STC leadership who attended online:
And to all our chapter members and volunteers for a terrific 2011.
Here's looking forward to communicating with you in 2012.
