From the President
by Jocelyn Williams, Independent Consultant
In recent weeks, we've heard about the transformation of our Society. What is this transformation? What is our role in this tranformation? The transformation involves a process of change that will result in a better, stronger STC.
Changes within Tech Comm
In recent years, changes within our profession have necessitated an organizational transformation. We now live in a global society. Our jobs and roles have changed. Technology has changed the way we communicate and work. Business and economic models have changed.

We will accomplish the transformation goals by defining where STC is, envisioning where STC needs to be, and planning how to get there.
Process of Transformation
The STC Board of Directors has also developed a process to guide us through the transformation. STC has completed many steps in the process, such as creating a business landscape analysis (a snapshot of the organization today) and a vision model (an ideal picture of how STC will look in the future).

Role of the Members
What can we as members do to help with the transformation? You are encouraged to communicate your needs, share your ideas, make change recommendations, talk with chapter and Society leaders, and work together to make STC better and stronger. It's also important to stay informed by reading the articles on the Transformation web site at www.stc.org/transformation.
Help make this transformation happen. It's our profession and our Society!
