Technical Communicators of Florida and Beyond,
As you can see in our author photo, this is the first-ever edition of Memo to Members brought to you by not one, but two lead editors!
For this very special edition, we bring you not only a mega-newsletter being overseen by two editors, but also a groundbreaking announcement from our president, Alex Garcia. Keep reading for more!
Also in this edition, Michele L. writes about how (after much hard work and time on her part) our chapter has kicked off in-person meetups in the Tampa Bay area!
Furthermore, after another successful annual joint Future Technical Communicators (FTC)/STC meeting at the University of Central Florida (UCF), six STC student members bring you a play-by-play recap of every progression-style venue topic.
By the way, we would like to give a special shout-out to Dan Voss for his receipt of a 2017 Chapter Service Award at the February meeting. Way to go, Dan, and thanks for pouring your blood, sweat, and tears into the success of this chapter for the past two decades and then some! After the next twenty years, we shall petition the Orlando mayor to erect a statue in your honor outside of City Hall. 😉
And finally, we would like to remind you of this month’s meeting—another annual tradition. That’s right: it’s time for our Annual Employment Panel meeting! We encourage you to join us this Thursday, March 22nd, for a question and answer session about all things tech comm employment/career development with our three esteemed panelists:
- Jack Molisani, ProSpring Technical Staffing
- Scott Dorsett, Riptide Software
- Mark Wray, University of Central Florida

Sincerest thanks for reading,
Nick Ducharme and Emily Wells
