Orlando Chapter STC
I want to take this chance to thank everyone for their financial support of the chapter. By joining our chapter as part of your STC society membership, you show that technical communication is important in our community.
Many of you also use the Amazon link when you purchase from Amazon. We receive about $25 to $40 a quarter; those funds allow us to offer more benefits to you, and don’t cost you a penny extra. Please create a shortcut and use our Amazon affiliate link for all of your Amazon purchases. You can purchase many things from Amazon. In the past I have subscribed to household items like toilet paper to ensure that I never run out again! I also buy specialty items that are difficult to find at the grocery store.
We also receive donations throughout the year to support the Melissa Pellegrin scholarship, other educational initiatives (such as supplemented STC membership), social gatherings, and meetings. If it was not for the generous donations we would not be able to support all of our exciting initiatives, such as the mentorship kick-off we sponsor each year. We have one of the most innovative and long-lasting technical communicator mentorship programs in the world! We could not be offering these opportunities to our students without the financial support of our local technical communicators.
If you have a suggestion or if would like to donate to the chapter, please feel free to e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
