Becoming an STC Fellow is a lifelong journey of achievement, an honor bestowed by the Society upon Associate Fellows who have continued to make exemplary contributions to the arts and science of technical communication, and for sustained and significant service to STC. These contributions involve significant achievements that advance the profession and its recognition.

Elevation from the rank of Associate Fellow to Fellow is not an automatic progression. Successful candidates for Fellow must demonstrate career-long accomplishments in all categories of the application. Continuing excellence since becoming an Associate Fellow in an important factor, as are the depth and breadth of accomplishments over the span of a candidate’s career.

Each year, the STC Fellows Committee considers the qualifications, contributions, and achievements of Associate Fellows who submit their credentials to the committee for review, and then submits recommendations for Fellow to the STC Board of Directors. Upon a two-thirds majority vote of the board, the rank of Fellow is conferred upon a recommended Associate Fellow. The Society takes enormous pride in recognizing these Fellows at the STC Summit following the vote of the board.

Honoree will be notified of approval: After vote by STC Board of Directors, usually in March.

Awards Presented: At the Honors Reception at the STC Technical Communication Summit.
