WDC Chapter Open House & Competition Winners Exhibit

Join us for the STC Washington, DC Chapter's 2008 Open House and Exhibit. Be inspired by winning entries from the 2007-2008 STC International Technical Art and Technical Publications Competitions, meet new people, and reconnect with old friends.

Our Open House is an informal event during which you can mingle with other chapter members and guests, learn more about the chapter, and enjoy delicious food and drinks catered by Whole Foods. New this year is our display of the traveling exhibit of winning entries from STC's International Technical Art and Technical Publications Competitions. These are the information products that won highest honors a Distinguished Technical Communication award at their chapter competitions of origin. They then competed with similar entries from around the world and won again at the international level. To enhance your appreciation of these fine examples of technical communication, actual judging comments will be displayed with each entry, allowing you to learn exactly what made it worthy of an international award, and perhaps then emulating those qualities in your own work.

We love students! Each paying attendee may bring a full-time high school or college student as your guest for free! To ensure sufficient refreshments, student guests must register.

All are welcome. Want to invite a friend, co-worker, or prospective member? Send them an invitation when you register.
