From the President
Mastering Knowledge for Success

by George Slaughter, Information Developer, BMC Software

Last year, STC Houston celebrated its 40th anniversary. This year, we focus on setting the stage for a bright, successful future.

Three Big Goals

The first of our three big goals is our forthcoming chapter membership survey. This survey gives you the chance to share your feelings about STC Houston and its activities. Pat Bishop, our membership director, is leading this effort.

The second goal is the creation of our five-year plan. We will hold a special strategic planning event October 19, and you’ll want to be on the lookout for more information.

The third goal is our mentor program. We’ve had such a program in the past, and we’re bringing it back this year. Paul Mueller, our vice president, will lead this effort.

Lots of Other Things, Too

STC Houston does much more, of course. We continue to have monthly program meetings, organized by Cindy Pao. Rebecca Taylor leads our communications team, which produces our Dateline Houston newsletter and updates our web site, www.stc-houston.org. Steve Cunningham is the local liaison to our satellite group leaders in Bryan–College Station and Louisiana.

Deborah Crockett and Deborah Silvi are leading our efforts for the annual technical publications competitions and February awards banquet.

Rene Gedaly leads our volunteer recruiting efforts. Wayne Schmadeka, Karen Trossevin, Deborah Long, and Jocelyn Williams will also play important roles this year. You’ll want to know these people as we start our program year.

Learning How to Succeed

More than ever before, knowledge is the key to success in our profession. We chose Mastering Knowledge as our theme for 2002–2003 because through STC Houston you can develop the skills you need to be successful. Join us as we make this year one of our best ever!
