STC SIGS AND FORUMS; HOW THEY CAN INCREASE YOUR PROFESSIONAL VALUE

Ann L. Wiley, STC Fellow
Ann L. Wiley Consultants, Inc. This Month Only: Participate in Person or Virtually!

The Society for Technical Communication (http://www.stc.org/...) is an international professional association with a wide range of virtual resources. Two of the strongest resources are the Special Interest Groups (SIGs) and Forums. However, the NYMetro Chapter believes that these resources may be some of the association's better kept secrets and we're sure that many members (and prospective members) don't understand the depth of these resources and how they can be of benefit to us in finding and keeping jobs. Therefore, on March 26th, the NY Metro Chapter will be conducting a program that will give you a better understanding of the association SIGs and Forums. At this program, the following are just some of the topics that we will be covering: • What are SIGs and Forums, and what SIGs and Forums are there?
• What are the resources available to me through SIGs and Forums?
• Are SIGs and Forums more than just a source of emails that clog up my email box?
• How can I learn more about my profession by participating in SIGs and Forums?
• How does participating in SIGs and Forums help my employment situation?
• Based on what I do on a daily basis, how do I find out which are the best SIG and Forums for me?
• Will participating in a SIG or Forum give me a deeper knowledge of what I do?
• What are some of the most active SIGs and Forums?
• Will belonging to SIGs and Forums add value to my association membership for my company? Our presenter is Ann L. Wiley, an STC Fellow and member of the NYMetro Chapter, as well as chapters in Upstate New York and Washington, DC. Ann is the founding lead of the STC Forum (http://stcforum.org)..., founded the Quality SIG and has managed that SIG and four others. She is the long-time editor of the newsletter and website of the International SIG (being updated at http://itcglobaltalk.....

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
