Houston Member Receives SIG Service Award
Jeff Staples has been named the recipient of the Distinguished SIG Service Award (DSSA).
This is a Society-level award designed to recognize sustained contribution to STC special interest groups.
Jeff was recognized for his significant contributions to the Quality SIG newsletter, DocQment, over the past 12 months. He led the effort to move the newsletter from print to online. Jeff is always willing to work with SIG members to develop articles for the newsletter, and this has led to an increase in the number of members contributing to the newsletter. Jeff has also been visible to SIG members via frequent contributions to our listserv. He has also published articles in other STC publications, most recently in the April 2003 issue of Tieline.
Jeff's citation reads:
STC has created a web site to commemorate its 50th anniversary. Visit www.stc.org/STC@50 today to read anecdotes from other STC members, share your own memories with your colleagues, and see pictures of "the way things used to be."
