Technical Communicators of Florida and Beyond,
This is it, the moment you’ve all been waiting for…our final joint editor newsletter! And of course, the 2018 Summit!
The Florida Chapter of STC has spent months eagerly preparing for the Summit and to welcome all of you to our home. Our chapter started by writing six articles for Intercom on topics relevant to the Summit and Orlando. Looking for some advice on local transportation options, off-the-beaten-path attractions, dining, and more for your stay during the Summit? Our chapter prepared an ultimate suite of articles to meet your needs, which we published in the last three editions of Intercom as shown below:
- Volume 64 Issue 10
- Welcome to Orlando, Your 2018 Summit Destination by Alex Garcia/Michelle Flores
- Volume 65 Issue 1
- Student Volunteerism: The Future of STC by Bethany Aguad/Alexandra Engrand
- Volume 65 Issue 2
- On the Menu: Your Guide to Eating During the Orlando Summit by Emily Wells
- While You’re Here… by Karen Lane/Tisa Newcombe
- Stay Awhile by Dan Voss/Andrea Romero
- Summit Preparation Tips by Nick Ducharme (with Debra Johnson as interviewee)–an online-only bonus article
On top of the wonderful articles, our chapter has also set up two awesome night-time events— and not one, but two Summit presentations (more on those in this month’s President’s Corner)!
While we’ve spent the past few months getting ready, we’ve also been hosting several other wonderful programs, many of which will be discussed at the Summit! You can also take a look in our April and March meeting recaps, as well as The View from Campus.
And finally, it is with bittersweet joy that we say farewell to one of our editors. That’s right, Nick is moving on to become our Vice-President Elect. While he’s sharing his goodbyes in Vacating the Editor’s Desk, I (Emily) am going to take over for a minute to say goodbye to my co-editor Nick. This has been an interesting and fun apprenticeship, and I thank you for everything you’ve done to help me ease into this role, rather than just throwing me into it (especially with all the Summit prep). It has been an honor and a privilege to work with you, and I wish you all the best as VP.
Now that we’ve made you all tear up (including me, Nick), it’s time for us to say goodbye for now. We hope to see you at the Summit!
Sincerest thanks for reading,
Nick Ducharme and Emily Wells
