July 17 STC chapter meeting

Our chapter meeting took place last night. We were going to have our competition winners from last year showcase their work in a progression format. Unfortunately, none of them were able to attend.

So we switched to general progression with some “table topics.” Our initial list of topics was this:

  • How did you get your first job in technical communications?
  • What’s your worst tech comm experience on the job? Share your horror story.
  • Contractor or regular employee? Pros and cons
  • Technical writer skills and alternative jobs
  • Judging STC competitions
  • How to submit a winning entry

But we had a small turnout so we chose the last four topics above.

Three young people who are just entering the field attended as well as some “old-timers” we hadn’t seen in a while.
