Liz Pohland

“STC's vision, as dictated by the board of directors, is to be recognized as the authority in the field of technical communication for those who design and deliver complex technical content. I believe STC can help individual members articulate their value through the content they develop. By transforming complex information into usable products and services, technical communicators are user and business advocates. They make products safer and more efficient and effective. In every program STC offers, such as professional development opportunities like Roundtable, a robust education program, an annual conference, certification, or publications, STC strives to provide technical communicators with the tools and learning they need to advance in their careers. STC should share the universal values of its membership and be an advocate for and collaborator with all stakeholders in the field. I look forward to working toward achieving these goals.”

Liz Pohland is an experienced editor, communicator, executive, and strategic thinker. She is a senior member of STC and was Intercom magazine's editor for over a decade. She studied technical communication and rhetoric in Texas Tech University's online PhD program, earned a Master's degree in English from Virginia Tech University, and has a BA in English and French from Hollins University. Before joining STC in 2009, Liz worked for the Folger Shakespeare Library, Princeton University Press, and Peterson's Publishing.
