As R.D. Sharninghouse mentioned last month, he’s decided to pass on the torch of Memo to Members’ editorship to me. I’d like to thank him not only for this amazing opportunity, but also for all the hard work that he’s donated to this role ever since August of 2013. His service as chapter Secretary continues to this day.
Here’s a brief self-introduction: My name’s Nick Ducharme. I graduated this past December from the University of Central Florida (UCF) with a BA in English: Technical Communication. Lately, I’ve been spending most of my time applying to entry-level technical writing opportunities in the Central Florida area. If I were to describe myself with three adjectives, they’d be “friendly,” “introverted,” and “open.” That last one in particular means that you’re all more than welcome to come and introduce yourselves to me; I really enjoy new people, perspectives, and experiences!
On that note, we have some fantastic experiences lined up in this month’s newsletter. Highlights include the UCF-sponsored chapter meeting and workshop coming up in just a few days, as well as the rapidly-approaching application deadline for UCF students interested in the Melissa Pellegrin Memorial Scholarship Fund for Technical Communication. Our team is also launching a monthly blog about interesting topics in technical communication.
Read on, dear communicators!
