For the 50th celebration our chapter petitioned the State of Wisconsin and City of Milwaukee to declare a week as Technical Communication week. We provided the content of the decrees and they were granted. During that week we:
- held a celebration meeting
- communicated the decree to chapter members and their employers
- visited TC classrooms and shared our story with students at our local universities
- sent press releases to the local papers about the decree and our profession

This is easily done and I can provide the text of our request. It would be great to see how many states grant the decree.
Having the week of the Summit declared National Technical Communication Week by the President would be very cool.

We could create a MySTC site where everyone can post photographs and memories about the past and present, and important events in the STC's history.

I worked at a company that created a website to celebrate its 30th anniversary in business. We could see the milestones accomplished, read the postings from other employees in other countries, and learn about our coworkers near and far.

I like this idea provided that those in the pics have a way of approving the images before they get posted to the web.

Queen Elizabeth II can help us with our diamond jubilee, having just gone through one herself. Let's make her an honorary member.

As discussed at the Chicago Summit, I will be happy to help with planning. As a Community Outreach member, I look forward to helping generate energy at the community level and believe this celebration will be a great focus for the coming year.

Mollye!

Thanks Mollye! I will definitely be working with the CAC to have a plan for communities to help celebrate STC's anniversary, as well as plan for their own milestone events.
