Professional Chapters

STC professional chapters are located around the globe for those who enjoy the benefits of local programming and networking with a diverse focus.

Puget Sound

The mission of the Puget Sound Chapter is to serve the interests of technical communicators in the Puget Sound Region.


Founded in 1958, the Rochester Chapter is based in upstate New York. Although most members live and work in the metropolitan Rochester area, it is geographically diverse, with members living in several surrounding counties.

Over 20 years, STC Sacramento has experimented vigorously in providing all kinds of services to members and to the community. Members work in high tech, health care, and government. We also have a growing number of student members, and some of us are full- or part-time teachers.

San Diego
