Technical Communicators of Florida and Beyond,
This is it…my first solo editor effort! I’ve been looking forward to my time as editor and communications chair, though not without some trepidation. After all, with great power…
You see, my stepping into the editor’s chair is only the beginning. Your incoming officers and I are thinking of new ways to help you, our members, get the most out of STC and our chapter. And let me just say, we’ve got some awesome ideas that we’ll discuss at our leadership retreat in July (so keep an eye out for the August Memo to Members for more details).
But before we start planning ahead and gearing up for our July leadership retreat, let’s take a minute to step back and celebrate all that we have accomplished this past year. First, after months of preparations, the Summit has come and past. As a chief planner of two Summit events (Pub Crawl and Diner Meetup), I’m ecstatic at the huge success.
For more on the Summit, see this month’s President’s Corner, where Alex Garcia reflects not only on this success but also his time as President.
Dan Voss also reflects on the Summit by sharing about a Florida Chapter tradition, “Washlines,” providing a how-to guide for others as well as some exciting news about coming attractions. More on this in the article below.
Last but not least, Misty Arner presents part 2 of a 4-part series reflecting on another ground-breaking year for our chapter’s student mentoring program.
With these and all our other accomplishments, our chapter has a lot to celebrate. Which brings me to our annual end of the year celebration and awards ceremony this Thursday, June 14. This event is a fun get-together that allows us to reflect and celebrate as a chapter (not to mention one of the best networking opportunities all year). For more information and to RSVP, visit our Meetup page.
I hope to see you at the celebration!
Catch you on the flip side,
Editor, Memo To Members
