Why I Want to Serve as Director

I’m proud of my STC membership, and privileged to be a part of this organization. STC has provided opportunities to me that has helped my professional growth. I am sure you as members of the Society for Technical Communication are also proud of your STC Membership, and your careers in technical communication. The Society must continually earn this pride, and provide value to its members, and promote the profession.

That is why I’m running for Director position so that I can serve the broader STC community and give back to STC – Serve The Community.

STC is evolving and is on a momentous and exciting journey. STC is a global association and has made inroads in Europe, India and China. STC should continue to increase its presence globally. The objective is to encourage STC activity globally in a proactive manner. This will bring into STC renewed growth, energy and creativity. As Director, I am eager to help in this effort.

One of STC’s greatest strengths is its diverse communities. Communities unite members of a geographic region and provide opportunities for education, networking, and employment most relevant to them. Today, some of our communities are facing challenges, including: declining membership, declining leadership, or both. As Director, I will work to find a healthy, sustainable solution for our communities.

Our profession has grown. But, STC has only a quarter or lesser of this number as members. We need a growth strategy and our value proposition has to be presented in a compelling way. STC has the infrastructure and the expertise to achieve this goal. As Director, I will contribute to this effort.     STC needs to broaden its reach beyond an association for technical communicators. STC has to reach out to other communication-related professional societies to make them aware of what STC has to offer. As Director, I will work with your support to make this happen.

Finally, this election is not only about me or any candidate. It is about all of us. It is about you. It is about your career, your dreams, your struggles and your life. The moment has come when we can come together and solve the problems.     If you elect me Director, I will put in my best efforts to serve STC, its communities, and members.     I will be grateful for your vote. Thank you for your support.
