Houston Wins STC Chapter Achievement, Pacesetter, Newsletter, and Public Relations Awards

STC Houston is once again a Chapter of Excellence!

Chapter of Excellence Award

A chapter earns a Chapter of Excellence Award by successfully completing a number of prescribed activities designed to promote the technical communication profession and the Society within a community.

The citation on the STC Houston Chapter of Excellence Award reads, "For mastering knowledge while providing excellent dedication to the southeast Texas and Louisiana technical communication communities, for outstanding recognition of volunteers, and for providing strong membership services in difficult economic times."

Chapter Pacesetter Award

The Chapter Pacesetter Award recognizes chapters for innovative and successful activities. The guidelines state that this award is "designed as a one-time celebration of excellence in the specific activity for which the chapter is nominated."

The citation on the STC Houston Chapter Pacesetter Award reads, "For exemplary leadership and innovative ideas that support and enhance chapter membership, the southeast Texas and Louisiana community, and the Houston STC leadership."

Newsletter Award of Merit

For at least the third year in a row, Dateline Houston won an award in the STC Newsletter Competition. This consistency is testimony to the fact that STC Houston consistently sets and maintains a high standard for our chapter publications.

Public Relations Award of Merit

For the third year in a row, STC Houston won an award in the STC International Public Relations Competition. Last year we won an award of excellence for our Region Five Conference communications. This year, we won an Award of Merit for our competitions communications. The citation reads, "For excellent use of communication tools."

Winning Track Record

George Slaughter, chapter president, had this to say in an e-mail message to the members:

"These . . . awards contribute to our chapter's outstanding track record. STC Houston has been named as a Chapter Achievement Award or Chapter Pacesetter Award recipient in seven of the past nine years, and the last four years. This tradition of service is a testament to your leadership and enthusiasm, and it has earned the respect of Society leaders everywhere."
