As a Director, it would be my responsibility to be the link between you and the Board. This means that my number one role would be communication. I got my start in technical writing, and now, as a project manager, my job is to take the needs of my teams (you and the Board) and find solutions for those needs. My first step as Director would be to talk to you, the people who make up STC, and find out what you think we could be doing better.
Student membership has always been a primary focus for me. The future of STC depends on grooming and educating the younger generation to eventually step into our shoes. We need to build this group and help make students an active part of our membership. It’s also important to expand our relationships with academic, professional, and industry organizations to broaden our base, share our message, and to find more opportunities for our members. Given the chance I will apply my experience and efforts to making STC successful – I do this because STC in turn makes us successful.
