Technical Communicators of Florida and Beyond,
Welcome to 2020! A new year, a new decade, and a new newsletter! Alright, a little over the top, but I’m excited for the new year and what it may bring. But first, let me bring you this month’s newsletter:
This month, we have our Future Technical Communicators (FTC)/STC annual meeting at the University of Central Florida (UCF). This year’s theme is Tech Comm Career Paths, focusing again on the many different career pathways available for a technical communicator. For more information, visit the RSVP page.
Next, last month, we shared more on the new graduate scholarship at UCF, inspired by our very own Mike Murray. This month, Bernard King shares about how our chapter helped give back to the community in other ways this past holiday season.
Speaking of Mike, this month he’s sharing some words of wisdom and encouragement as part of his Excellence column, helping kick off a new decade, and a new section in our chapter’s history.
Finally, we have not one, but two January meeting recaps (Lessons from New Tech Comm Professionals), both from first-time MtM writers! First James Yunik sets the stage, providing the 411 on the helpful advice and main topics covered by the panelists. Next, Connor Elfrink shares his take on his first chapter meeting (welcome Connor!), as well as some key takeaways.
That’s all from me for now. I hope to see you at the meeting.
Catch you on the flip side,
Editor, Memo To Members
