Throughout Jackie’s time in STC, she has upheld the STC ethics, always been willing to mentor others in STC and in the technical communication field, and has been available to serve where asked.
Jackie has chosen to run once again for the Nominating Committee to offer her support to this committee by using her network of contacts and her knowledge of STC practices to find the right nominees for the right positions. She has considered running for other Board positions, yet is not able to commit to the time commitments those roles require.
