Vice President

Vice President (three-year term)

The current vice president’s duties include supporting the strategic objectives of the Society, as well as any other responsibilities assigned by the president. These responsibilities may vary from year to year. The STC Bylaws specify that the vice president automatically progresses to president, and then to immediate past president. Each of these offices has a one-year term, so the person who becomes our next vice president is making a total commitment to three years of service.

Candidates for vice president must be passionate about our industry; have in-depth knowledge of Society-level processes and practices; and be experienced in implementing large business, policy, or educational initiatives outside of STC. They must have extensive leadership experience, preferably in prior positions at the Society level, community level, or in other organizations; should be aware of STC’s accomplishments and problems; and should have good ideas about future actions needed in response to trends in the profession and the needs of our members.
