President’s Message September 2017

Welcome back to another year for STC Houston! I hope you weathered Harvey with no harm or damage, and if you maintained damage I hope it’s minor. I know some STC members have been affected, including former Administrative Council members, and our hearts go out to them.

While Harvey certainly started the year on an odd note, we hope this year will be beneficial to you and your career. Last year we connected with the American Medical Writers Association (AMWA), the Communicating Science Conference (ComSciCon) held at Rice University, and the STC Workshop at UH Downtown. We’ve also reached out to the HCC technical writing department and students.

Programs last year included BioSciences writing and editing, flexibility and creativity in technical communication careers, recruitment for technical communication careers, DITA 101, and more.

This year we are looking a few extra changes:

  • More networking events all over Houston to bring STC to you
  • Participation in the STC Competitions
  • Changes in our meeting structure
  • and even more innovative, informative and instructional programs to serve you

Our first meeting will be a networking meeting at the Cadillac Bar and Grill, 1802 Shepherd Dr, Houston, TX 77007, from 6pm to 8pm. Let us know what we can do for you!
