End-of-year announcements: 2012 membership renewal, survey, and other news

Hello, STC Rochester chapter members,

I hope you’re enjoying the holiday season. As we bring December to a close, I would like to share some important information about your STC membership and upcoming events.Most important of all — we want you with us in 2012! Many of you have already renewed your membership, and for that, our sincere thanks. If you haven’t renewed, there’s still time to do so, which will enable you to continue benefiting from membership in a friendly, dynamic community that is working hard to bring you the value you expect and deserve. We hope that you will once again say “Yes” to your professional community — we wouldn’t have a community without you!. To renew your membership, go to http://www.stc.org/membership

STC offers several categories of membership, as well as the option of paying for your membership in four installments. If you have any questions or concerns about your membership, I am available at membership@stc-rochester.org.

If you haven’t done so already, please take a few moments to complete our chapter member survey. Your feedback is valuable to us, and we will be reviewing every response and every comment carefully. The survey closes on Tuesday, December 20. To take the survey, go to

To those who have completed the survey — many thanks.

The new year is almost here, and we are lining up some great programs for 2012. Check the chapter website in early January for more information.

Don’t forget to mark your calendars for Spectrum 2012! Our 53rd annual conference will take place at the RIT campus on Monday, April 23, with a keynote presentation on Sunday evening, April 22. You’ll be hearing more about the conference program and registration early in 2012.

If you love to buy books or software online, you can enjoy shopping and support the Rochester chapter, too! The next time you plan to make a purchase from Amazon.com, go to the chapter website (http://www.stc-rochester.org) and click the Amazon link in the right sidebar. STC Rochester will receive between 4% and 8% of the price of your purchases, with no increased cost to you. We will not be able to see who purchased products.

On behalf of STC Rochester, I wish you all a safe and joyful holiday, and a new year filled with good things. We look forward to seeing you in 2012! Thank you for being a member.

With warm regards,
