Members and Friends of the Florida Chapter STC,
The 2018 STC Summit is only one month away. Can you believe it? If you are an STC student, you have an opportunity to attend the Summit for FREE, in exchange for some of your time.
In return for volunteering two out of four days at the STC Summit, you get free admission to all the sessions. There are positions Sunday May 20th through Wednesday May 23rd as room monitors or registration clerks. Students must complete the Student Volunteer Application Form to be considered for a position. Applications must be completed and sent to STC’s Education Manager, Deborah Krat, and the Student Volunteer Coordinator, Carolyn Klinger. As of press time, we need nine more volunteers.
Carolyn said “Even when a student is volunteering as a room monitor, I work with them to choose sessions to monitor that they wanted to attend anyway. All they need to do is count the heads and send the number to our group in the GroupMe app, offer help to the speaker, and sit back and enjoy. Note that this arrangement does not include preconference workshops. It does include continental breakfast Monday through Wednesday.”
Here is the full schedule of sessions: https://summit.stc.org/schedule/
And Registration is available at: https://summit.stc.org/conference/registration-rates/
Hope you can make it to the Summit; it truly is a once-in-a-lifetime networking opportunity!
