Taking the "Dis" out of "Disabilities":
Special Needs SIG Seeks Support
Here's a reminder as the STC membership renewal process creeps up on its February 28 deadline. The Society's newest SIG, the Special Needs SIG, still needs new members to support its twin missions:
The SNSIG has already made significant progress: a comprehensive web site at www.stcsig.org/sn/index.shtml, which contains a detailed mission statement; an online newsletter (the first edition is posted at www.stcsig.org/sn/newsletter.shtml); and extensive support to the 49th STC Annual Conference, including publication of Guidelines for Persons with Special Needs and an Addendum to those guidelines, a successful progression, and several articles in the Proceedings (conference materials available at www.stc-orlando.org/prodev/49notes/SNC.asp).
But there is much yet to do, and the SNSIG needs more people. It is looking for both active members to join their initiatives and patrons to help secure the budget needed to fulfill objectives.
If you would like to support the Special Needs SIG, you have the following options:
