November 2009 Program Meeting: 11/05/2009Posted by Managing Editor in Chapter Meetings.
The State of STC as the New Decade Dawns
Hillary Hart, STC 2nd Vice-President, will present an overview of the state of STC at the closing of this year of financial crisis. She will summarize STC’s current financial position, explain the new 2010 dues structure, and describe some of the new benefits and services (the “New Norm”) that are coming online now and in the coming year. (For full details, click on http://www.stc-houston.org/events?event_id=37)
Hillary will also present her vision of STC’s New Norm: the direction she would like to see the Society take in the next couple of years, with the help of its community leaders and members.
As the STC communities become more similar in administrative structure, increased collaboration and synergy across communities of practice and of geography become possible. Increased use of social media and other online communication technologies enables more timely communication between STC and members. These synergies and enhanced communication are great for both STC and its members but necessitate new infrastructure and bring with them responsibilities for consistent, clear, accurate messaging by all parties.
Hillary would really like to hear from Houston chapter members how they see the STC network of communities evolving and how STC and its communities can partner to advance the profession of Technical Communication.
