For 20 years, the Florida Chapter has recognized and rewarded the members who are essential to our chapter’s success with unique active member shirts. Our distinctive leadership shirts aren’t sold, only earned. They set our membership apart at meetings, STC conferences, and at work. In fact, after years of envy, several other chapters have contacted us and started their own active membership programs.
These shirts let members celebrate chapter pride whenever they wear them. It sends a positive message to employers, clients, family, and co-workers: I am committed to technical communication and self-development. That’s why I’m a member of STC!
Now that our chapter meetings are regularly networked statewide, we make sure that virtual attendees aren’t overlooked – just ask our members in Georgia and California. As the table shows, members earn points for every monthly meeting attended, whenever they put on a program, attend an Administrative Council meeting, or serve as a judge or mentor. Another great way to earn points is by helping Communications Chair Julia Southwick with articles, photography, and production.
Based on past campaigns, the most active 15 percent of our membership ordinarily receive shirts. Will we see you at our next meeting?
And, By the Way…
