Hey there,

Welcome to the April issue of Memo to Members! As per usual, I’m very excited about our upcoming monthly chapter meeting. In fact, I can’t stress enough how vital this month’s subject matter is to just about any organization’s reputation.

This Thursday, April 16th, our chapter will gather to view a presentation on risk communication by Ms. Dawnell Claessen, an information policy analyst with more than 25 years of experience as a technical communicator. We will also be handing out the coveted Melissa Pellegrin Memorial Scholarship to a couple of very deserving technical communicators from the University of Central Florida. (More on that will follow later in this edition.)

Please click here to RSVP and to learn more about this event. I look forward to seeing many of you there.


Additionally, here are some upcoming live web seminars that will be available on the STC website. I’m seeing an impressive variety that I believe has something to offer each of us, so check one out if you have the time! (If you take notes, perhaps you could even write an article for a future edition of Memo to Members. We would be thrilled to have you on board.)
