5. Professional Friendships
You’re going to find friends you’ll laugh and share professional experiences with for the next 40 years.
In the end, it’s all about your kind of people. As the world’s largest membership organization for technical communicators, STC is the best place to find people who care about what you care about. Deadlines. Proper grammar. The right word. Clarity. Impact.
That’s the reason you’ll find technical communicators in their 20s and in their 70s at an STC chapter meeting. Many have been laughing with and supporting each other for decades, and that can be your experience too.
You’ll just have to renew to find out.
