Technical Communicators of Florida and Beyond,
The holiday season is upon us! If you follow gift-giving traditions and still have some purchases left to make, might I suggest using our Amazon pass-through link? All you have to do is click the link (conveniently available on the right-hand sidebar), then shop on Amazon like normal! For no extra cost to you, Amazon will give a percentage of your purchase back to STC (Orlando Central) Florida.
Thank you, generous clickers. 🙂
You probably saw several emails about our upcoming holiday social. The booking deadline was today because we had to provide a headcount to the restaurant, Buca di Beppo. I look forward to seeing those of you who are able to join us!
I’d like to conclude my intro with a small personal announcement that I’ve hinted at in the past: In 2018, I’m going to begin passing the Memo to Members torch to a worthy successor—a certain rising star within our chapter that I believe has a lot to bring to the role. This transition will be gradual over the remainder of the chapter year, from now through the 2018 Summit in Orlando.
I’ve always viewed the role of Editor as a great stepping stone for technical communicators looking to take their chapter involvement to the next level. February will be my three-year anniversary as your Memo to Members Editor, and I’d just like to say that I’m very grateful for this opportunity. It has provided me with excellent exposure to the many facets and roles of STC(OC)F chapter leadership. I vacate this position with not only an eagerness to try out other chapter responsibilities, but also a wish that all who follow in my footsteps will find the experience just as enriching and rewarding as I have. Everyone deserves such chances.
Anyhow, I’ve taken up enough of your time. There are other articles in this edition, and we’d best get to ’em. (I also have some baked goods to go consume.) Read on, dear communicators!
