November 2002

Volunteer of the Month
Cathy Bettoney

by Paul Mueller, Senior Information Development Manager, NetIQ Corporation

Cathy Bettoney is the November 2002 Volunteer of the Month for STC Houston for her work as the Dateline Houston translation editor. During the past two program years, Cathy has converted our newsletter contributions from various formats into FrameMaker for our copy editors. She is always eager and willing to work with our layout editor to find better ways to populate our templates and make it easier for all the newsletter editors.

Being our translation editor is not an easy job. Cathy often needs to complete last-minute projects to ensure that the newsletter is delivered on time. She works through sometimes complex content issues and delivers what the newsletter team needs. We truly could not produce the newsletter without her. George Slaughter, our chapter president, had the following things to say about Cathy:

“Cathy Bettoney has done a great job helping the newsletter team, and we would love to see more volunteers like her. Cathy is eager to learn new tools and skills. She brings a lot of enthusiasm to the chapter, and I think she is most deserving of this award.”

Cathy is currently a technical writer at Millar Instruments, Inc. In her recent article, “Technical Writing as a Second Career,” (Dateline Houston, October 2002) Cathy describes how she moved from teaching geometry into exploring the technical communication field. Her enthusiasm and ability to quickly learn new skills shines through as she describes her journey.

STC Houston is pleased to honor Cathy Bettoney as November 2002 Volunteer of the Month.
