Orlando Central Florida Chapter, STC
On April 16th, the Orlando Central Florida chapter held their monthly meeting at the Winter Park Civic Center. Dawnell Claessen, an information policy analyst with more than 25 years of experience as a technical communicator, gave her presentation on Risk Communication. The presentation covered the process of putting together risk communication deliverables within a risk management framework. It was both informative and entertaining. I, for one, was very interested in the applications for risk communication, and am now aware of a whole new area of technical writing. As someone who has been searching for work within this industry, it’s nice to discover more angles to apply technical writing.
