Volunteer of the Month
John Turner

by Paul Mueller, Senior Information Development Manager, NetIQ Corporation
Melanie G. Flanders, Chief Information Architect, KnowledgeMasters, Inc.

John Turner is the STC Houston December 2002 Volunteer of the Month for his work as the Share-the-Knowledge (STK) Committee manager. John has managed the STK Committee since its inception over five years ago, and has made arrangements for several innovative sessions.

Last year, John worked closely with Gary Foster to establish our first annual Employment STK. We will reprise this highly successful STK in January 2003. Recently, John also arranged a FrameMaker STK that one attendee described as, “one of the most valuable STKs I’ve ever attended.”

John is a senior technical writer with the Integrity Group, where he has spent most of the past five years documenting hardware and software for Compaq and Hewlett-Packard.

Before becoming a technical writer six years ago, John was a chemistry professor at the University of Houston and other universities. John holds a Ph.D. in chemistry. John has researched ways to offer valuable sessions for our chapter members and he continues to look for new ways to meet our educational needs. This year, John has also become involved with the Programs Committee, working closely with Cindy Pao, our chapter director of programs.

STC Houston is pleased to honor John Turner as December 2002 Volunteer of the Month.
