Staying in Touch With Your Community

Coordinating with members, volunteers and administration council members across a large geographic or metropolitan area can be challenging. STC Houston coordinates with admin council members using Skype and Google Drive, and STC France keeps in touch with members using MailChimp. Erika Frensley describes how STC Houston uses Skype and Google Drive for STC Houston meetings and business. Toni Ressaire talks about using MailChimp and principles that would apply to any email software.

Reminder: Advanced Project Management Begins in One Week

The skills that we refine over time as technical communicators have a critical place in project management: communicating content, identifying audience needs, extracting knowledge from subject matter experts, and ensuring quality deliverables. 

Congratulations to the Student Infographic Competition Winners!

The STC Academic SIG invited STC student members to demonstrate their ability to clarify complex data sets and exercise their creative talents by entering a Student Infographic Competition at the 2016 Summit. This year, the Academic SIG changed its annual poster competition to an infographic competition. The challenge was to present either of two important aspects of the STC Salary Database as an infographic. Two winners were chosen. They will each have their work published in Intercom magazine as well as win a cash prize. The two winners will be highlighted during the Honors Reception. The Student Infographic Committee consisted of Lisa Meloncon (Chair), Phylise Banner, Eva Brumberger, and William Horton.
