Orlando Central Florida Chapter, STC
On Saturday August 27, 2016, the STC Orlando Central Florida Leadership Retreat was held at the UCF Technical Communication Lab.
The meeting covered the next year of the STC chapter: tentative programs, membership, active membership, social media/communication, mentorship, the Pellegrin scholarship, and the next Summit in Washington D.C.
The biggest topic at the Retreat was the merger of the Suncoast and the Orlando Central Florida chapters. The Society approved the merger, and renaming discussions got right underway. New committees such as the Membership, Equipment, Treasury, Communications, and Website committees will help guide the merger.
It will be interesting seeing our chapter grow over the next year. I think it will be a very active year for members as we work to incorporate all the necessary changes to make the merger run smoothly.
