Each year, STC recognizes leaders of our profession with the Associate Fellow and Fellow honors. An STC Associate Fellow is a Senior Member who has attained distinction in the field of technical communication and has been active in the field for at least 15 years. Fellow is an honor bestowed on Associate Fellows who have continued to make exemplary contributions to our profession and our organization. The contributions of Associate Fellows and Fellows involve significant achievements that advance the profession and its recognition.
Near the end of each year, STC Fellow and Associate Fellow committees consider the qualifications, contributions, and achievements of members who submit their credentials to the committees for review. The committees then provide recommendations to STC’s Board of Directors. Fellows and Associate Fellows are recognized at the STC Summit following the vote of the board.
This year, the STC Fellow and Associate Fellow committees are updating the application forms and adding examples and guidance to help improve the application process. We expect the new application forms to be posted and available 1 September 2017. To make sure candidates have the time they need to apply, the deadline to submit applications will be 1 November 2017. We look forward to recognizing the established leaders among us. If you have questions, please contact Associate Fellow Committee Chair Nicky Bleiel (firstname.lastname@example.org), Fellow Committee Chair Paul Mueller (email@example.com), or STC staff liaison Elaine Gilliam (firstname.lastname@example.org).
