There are tech writers in the desert?
The Southern Nevada chapter of the STC had its first meeting in April of 1986. Since then, our presence in southern Nevada has been steadily growing. Our chapter serves all areas in southern Nevada (we also have a few members in St. George, UT) and is part of Region 8. We meet on the first Wednesday of each month and are dark during the months of July and December.
In addition to helping members network, enhance their career, and improve their skill sets, we are also helped host the 53rd Annual STC Conference. We partner with a number of community organizations and businesses which, in turn, helps enhance life for all those living in So. Nevada.
The So. Nevada chapter of STC brings together technical communicators from many different industries and areas in southern Nevada. Our chapter is relatively small with fewer than 40 members. However, we have an extremely dedicated and talented group. We recently undertook the immense project of completely redesigning our website and we are preparing to help host the 53rd Annual Conference.
Members of our chapter work for casinos, software development companies, and the government. A few of our members are employed by firms in Silicon Valley and use the latest technology to telecommute. We have a few student members who attend one of the local colleges.
If You Build It, They Will Come…
And so we do. On the 3rd Wednesday of each month, we gather at Ford Country in Henderson (280 N. Gibson Road), which is located at the Valley Automall. Meetings are held from 6:30–8:30 PM in an upstairs conference room. We discuss the latest STC happenings as well as network with other writers, share our tips of the trade, and enjoy a little snack! We do not meet in July or December, but instead we do a social or volunteer event (July) and a holiday party (December). All meetings are open to members, guests, and the general public. Special events (such as social or volunteer events and the holiday party) are open to members and invited guests only. Our website is www.stcnevada.com, and our Facebook page is STC Southern Nevada.
