Promoting technical communication and providing outstanding education resources helps STC members deliver high value in their organizations and move into a variety of disciplines. It’s exciting to watch people with technical communication skills grow into new fields like content strategy, mobile content development, and user experience.
STC is going in new directions, and I want to continue to be part of the leadership of this transforming organization. My time on the board the last couple of years has opened my eyes to the swath of diversity we have in our membership, and I enjoy the challenge of working to serve the profession and the wide variety of professionals.
