STC Houston Ranked #17 in the List of Most Popular STC Chapters and SIGs 05/14/2013

Posted by Yvonne Wade Sanchez in 2013 Issues.

What a great year we’ve had.  We started the program year off celebrating our 50th anniversary as a techcomm organization. Then, we ended the program year being recognized at the STC Summit in Atlanta as a Distinguished Chapter (highest rank) and also the Most Improved Chapter.  Part of what made this year fantastic was the increase in the amount of online engagement.  In September of 2012, I shared some stats that showed that STC Houston ranked #25 as one of the most popular STC chapters or SIGs on Twitter.  I’m excited to share that we’ve moved up to #17 and that the number of followers of @STCHouston has increased by almost 50%.

Great stuff! How was this list generated?

Rick, since I took over as Social Media Manager for STC Houston in August 2012, I’ve been tracking the numbers. I reported STC Houston’s rank at the beginning of the program year, and I decided to close the program year with a report on our progress. I have a spreadsheet in which I track the numbers, so if you would like to see it, I’m happy to share.
