The Society for Technical Communication is proud to announce the 2020 class of Associate Fellows. Associate Fellow is one of the three honorary ranks in the Society. It is the second highest rank that the Society can confer upon a member, Fellow being the highest. This honor recognizes members for their outstanding achievements in, and contributions to, the arts and science of technical communication and for sustained and significant service to STC.
Associate Fellows retain this honorary rank for life, unless they are elevated to the rank of Fellow.
To be considered for Associate Fellow, a candidate must have:
- Been active in technical communication for at least 15 years
- Fulfilled ten years of service as an STC Member (with at least five years at the level of Senior Member), as of the application submission deadline.
The Society will formally recognize the new Associate Fellows at the Technical Communication Summit Conference & Expo in Bellevue, WA, at the Honors Event on Sunday, 17 May, from 5:30-7:00 p.m.
