Candidate Statement:

I believe that the Society should embrace the word “Communications” in it’s title and look beyond just being a society for technical writers (which is what it has become by default), and include other communication professionals from the worlds of graphics, audio, video, and emerging fields such as AR etc.  As President I would plan and execute on an outreach program to broaden the Society’s membership and embrace different disciplines. (see my Convergence Conversations column on Page 27 of the July/August 2018 issue of INTERCOM for more on this.)”
