The Community Affairs Committee just announced a new webinar intended for STC community leaders and members interested in education and collaboration: Great Programming for All of Us! Leveraging Community Collaboration and Virtual Events with Ben Woelk. The webinar takes place this Friday, 11 August, at noon EDT (GMT-4). The CAC has the details:

About the Webinar

STC communities (both geographic chapters and SIGs) sometimes struggle to provide meaningful educational programming for our members and constituents. Unfortunately, it’s not always easy to identify local subject matter experts or seasoned presenters. Winter brings another set of challenges, as travel to in-person meetings can be difficult in Canada and the northern United States. Join Ben Woelk, Spectrum Conference co-chair and former program manager for STC Rochester, as he discusses a virtual techcomm showcase model that enables multiple chapters to participate in programming, both as attendees and by providing presenters.

We’ll also discuss possible opportunities for community collaboration in 2017-18, so bring your ideas!

About the Audience

This webinar is for all STC community leaders, who are encouraged to register and attend online or watch the recording.
