Welcome to the May issue of Memo to Members. I hope that you all had a very happy Mothers Day, and that you make the most of beach season if you’re a water lover.

Oh, and while you’re at it, definitely make the most of this month’s meeting! It’s this Thursday, May 21st, on the all-important Style Guides topic. This is a topic that speaks not only to seasoned veterans in the tech comm world, but also to newcomers like me. What’s more, I am especially excited to mention that this month’s presenter is none other than our own chapter Vice President, Mary Burns!

Please click here to RSVP and to learn more about this event. You’ll be very glad that you did.

This issue, we announce new Special Interest Groups within our chapter and recap the many awards that we celebrated over the past couple of months. Additionally, our two regular bloggers join forces for one knock-your-socks-off spotlight interview!


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.)
