Hi folks!

My, how quickly time passes. We’ve reached the end of another illustrious chapter year. This spring saw the continuation of our series on ethics in the aerospace industry, an enlightening employment panel, a momentous joint meeting at UCF, and a foray into Tech Comm in the IT Industry. In the meantime, David Coe represented the STC (Orlando Central) Florida Chapter at the 64th annual STC Summit in Washington, D.C. As you read in this space last month, the Summit was quite the fulfilling experience.

Speaking of the Summit, we are now less than a year away from hosting the 2018 STC Summit right here in Orlando, FL. All eyes will be on the Orlando Central Florida Chapter to provide hospitality for the Summit. We need all the volunteers we can get. If interested in joining the Summit Committee, please drop me a line at president@stc-orlando.org.

This Thursday we celebrate our chapter achievements, chapter elections, and officer transitions. I’d like to personally thank former Memo to Members Editor and outgoing chapter Secretary, RD Sharninghouse, for his years of service to the chapter. We will be sure to find a fulfilling role for RD in the years to come. Along the same lines, we celebrate the ascension of one of our illustrious students/new technical communicator members, Crystal Brezina, into chapter leadership. I expect great things from Crystal.

June and July represent our summer reprieve from STC. But fret not, your administrative council will hold its retreat in July to plan another exciting year of professional development programming, and of course, the Summit!

 

‘Til next year,

Alex
