Technical Communicators of Florida and Beyond,
With the holidays fast approaching, let me start with a friendly reminder to please use our Amazon pass-through link (available on the right sidebar) while shopping! It’s a great way to give a little back to the chapter without costing you anything extra at all.
This episode is full to bursting with content from several talented and dedicated individuals in our chapter! It includes a friendly membership renewal reminder from our fearless leader Alex; a new column from UCF’s Future Technical Communicators president Andy; a couple articles related to our thriving mentoring programs from Emily, Bethany, and Alexandra; and more!
In case you missed it, here is the topic of this month’s chapter meeting:
40 Years in Tech Comm: An STC Fireside Chat
On the day of his retirement from Lockheed Martin, the venerable W.C. Wiese has agreed to give us a fireside chat on his 45 years in tech comm. W.C. Wiese is retiring with 45 years’ experience in aerospace marketing support and program communications. Mostly recently, he was communications manager for a unique joint venture company formed by Lockheed Martin with German and Italian defense contractors.
A member of STC for 30 years, W.C. is an STC Fellow and has served as STC treasurer and director at large. He previously served as president of STC’s Orlando Chapter following a 5-year tenure as chapter treasurer. He has presented at 13 STC Summits. Recognitions include a Gloria Jaffe Outstanding Technical Communicator Award, two Lockheed Martin Comet Awards, a PR News Platinum Award, and multiple awards in the Florida Technical Communication Competition.
Please note that this meeting will take place at the Perkins on University Boulevard instead of our usual IHOP. To RSVP and learn more about this Thursday’s presentation, please click here!
