Florida Chapter, STC
Members and Friends of the STC Florida Chapter,
2018 has been a year of exciting opportunities and challenges for the Florida chapter!
From updating our branding to hosting the 2018 Summit, treasured memories abound. Looking back to my first President’s Corner in August, we have accomplished so much since then:
- Sharing four educational programs in person and online from nationally recognized presenters (Meetups)
- Conducting five virtual networking meetings connecting with technical communicators across Florida
- Hosting our first hybrid panel with face-to-face and virtual panelists (How to Make Subject Matter Experts Your Tech Comm Allies)
- Formalizing our chapter’s commitment to inclusivity (Our Values)
You all worked hard, dedicating your time and energy to the chapter, and I cannot thank you enough! I especially want to thank David Coe and Riptide for graciously providing meeting space this year. We have had several fantastic programs in their conference room while connecting with our online attendees. We are now truly connected statewide, and I have enjoyed the chance to get to know so many of you this year.
Going into next year, I know we have opportunities to build on this year’s achievements. Volunteers are the fuel that powers our chapter’s success! We are seeking members who want to get involved from short-term projects to ongoing committee roles. If you are interested in getting involved, please reach out to me, since I know we all have talents to share.
Happy holidays and have a wonderful new year!
