Society for Technical Communication 2020 Leadership Program

Wednesday, 27 May 2020

5:00 to 7:00 PM Eastern Daylight Time


The Community Affairs Committee, the STC office, and the Board of Directors invite all community leaders to this time of celebration, education, and community. We encourage all leaders past, present and future to join us online for a time of connecting and learning. Traditionally, this event is part of the Summit, but this year we are excited to host our 2020 Leadership Program as a separate event.

Our free annual Leadership program will be hosted virtually on May 27 from 5:00-7:00pm EDT. This will enable us to:

  • Provide a welcoming and inclusive Leadership program event for all STC leaders who wish to attend beyond Summit attendees
  • Focus on community leadership activities
  • Highlight community programming and networking
  • Accommodate attendees across time zones

This event is for anyone currently in a leadership position in an STC chapter or special interest group (SIG), or if you want to be more involved in the leadership of your chapter or SIG. At the Leadership Program, you’ll be able to talk with your counterparts about what they do, meet the award-winning communities’ leadership, and get details about the successes they’ve had.
