Jim Hunt Named STC Associate Fellow

Editor, Mentor, and Strategic Advisor Honored for Service

by George Slaughter, Senior Technical Writer, The Integrity Group

Jim Hunt, an STC Houston senior member, has been named Associate Fellow by the STC Associate Fellows Committee and the STC Board of Directors.

Jim will be formally recognized this May at the STC Annual Conference Awards Banquet in Baltimore.

About the Associate Fellowships

An STC associate fellowship is conferred upon an STC senior member who has attained distinction in the field of technical communication. Those who receive associate fellowships are nominated by a committee of Associate Fellows and Fellows.

About Jim Hunt

Jim has been involved in the technical communication profession for 20 years and has been an STC member for 21 years. Currently, he is a senior technical editor at BMC Software, where he has edited award-winning user documentation for approximately 70 products during his 10 years with the company. He has served in a variety of other editorial positions and was an adjunct faculty instructor at San Diego Community College for 10 years.

Jim's STC Participation

Jim is well-known among STC Houston leaders for his long-term involvement as a editor, mentor, and strategic advisor. STC Houston members see his work through the Dateline Houston newsletter, STC Houston Web site, and chapter bylaws.

"During my term as STC Houston president (2000-2001), Jim was named `Man of the Year' to express the membership's appreciation for his strategic planning efforts and dedication to keeping us on the right track," Deborah Long said. "He continues to be invaluable source of knowledge and moral support, as he actively participates in STC against all odds."

Linda Oestreich, STC Region 5 Director-Sponsor, praised Jim's commitment to STC: "Jim has been a constant and consistent force in STC Houston and in STC San Diego for more than 20 years," Linda said. "He is one of those folks who works behind the scenes, takes little up-front recognition, and just dedicatedly moves forward, doing what is needed when he is asked."

Linda also praised Jim's influence and counsel: "His influence on the written and spoken communications of both chapters has been incomparable," Linda said. "His wise counsel has helped countless STC leaders and technical communications professionals from the West Coast to Texas!"
