I imagine some of our chapter members would like to know if paying for the Vice President’s registration to the annual conference had any value. I certainly hope you think so, because I was very happy with my first STC conference. I got lots of great ideas and guidance for the upcoming year. Here are some of the sessions I attended on Leadership Day:
“Resource sharing for low volunteer communities” with David Caruso
“Awards and recognition” with Lori Meyer
“Succession planning and volunteers” with Ben Woelk
“Revitalizing your membership” with Christopher Ward
The 62nd annual Technical Communication Summit took place in Columbus, Ohio from June 21 – 24.
This year’s Summit was another great experience with educational sessions and networking.
A new event this year was Speed Networking. This event gave registrants the opportunity to meet several attendees in a short amount of time. Participants rotated throughout several tables in the one-hour session and gave an overview to introduce themselves. This event gave each participant a chance to meet others who you may not have had the opportunity to meet at the Summit. For those who were interested in making a further connection there were other networking events to follow-up.
In addition to the wealth of educational sessions another great feature of the Summit is the Expo Hall. This is a chance to get product demos and ask questions with experts from several software vendors who can provide specific solutions for your company.
The Southeastern Michigan chapter had a great time at the Summit.
