February 2004

From the President

Next Order of Business

by Jocelyn Williams, Independent Consultant

Congratulations to all of the STC Houston Competitions award winners!

The competitions judging is over and our awards banquet is past. What's next for STC Houston? The next item of importance is the nomination and election of new chapter officers and directors for the coming year.

Verna Dunn and her committee members (Paul Mueller and Pat Bishop) have started recruiting prospective candidates.

Opportunities Galore

Experience, though important, is not a requirement. You can learn by doing. What is required is a passion for technical communication and an eagerness for new challenges. If you're asked to run for a chapter position, I recommend that you take the opportunity to serve and keep an open mind.

Service within STC is hard work. However, you have the opportunity to touch lives, inspire new members, implement changes, and help chapter operations and events run smoothly for another year. The hard work is worthwhile!

Nominating Details

For questions or to recommend a candidate to fill the roles of chapter president, vice president, treasurer, secretary, or director, contact Verna Dunn, nominating manager ( Our nominating committee will announce the slate of candidates in March. Chapter members will vote on candidates at the April program meeting.

Society-Level Elections

Elections for society-level officers are also held in the spring, so watch your email or mailbox for voting information. In addition to the hardcopy voting ballot, an online voting ballot will be available. Check the STC web site ( for candidate profiles and online voting ballots. To vote, you must renew your STC membership by February 28.

Make your voices heard!
