For promoting and advancing technical communication, freely sharing his expertise, and building bridges to related disciplines, and for service to the STC Berkeley Chapter and the Society.


Joseph J. Devney has been active in STC since shortly after he began his career in techni­cal communication in the mid-1990s. He served three years as president of the Berkeley Chapter, as well as judging the International Technical Art Competition and delivering a class and a presentation via the Berkeley Chapter. His lifelong interest in language also led him to return to school in 2007 to earn a Master’s degree in linguistics at Georgetown University. He is currently exploring the links between technical communication, linguistics, and legal language.
