December Holiday Party

December 13, 2016 @ 5:30 PM - 8:30 PM

Please save the date for a night of great food and fun as the Rochester Chapter of STC celebrates the holiday season.


Based on input and those who volunteered, we’ll be having Lightning Talks* in addition to dinner and networking.

We have three lightning talks already lined up:

  • 10 Ways to Deal with Year-End Busyness during the Holidays with Marilyn Woelk. Good and bad ways to deal with year-end stress on the job and at home. Humorous but relevant suggestions to help attendees protect their daily sanity and productivity as 2016 wraps up.
  • Holiday Gifts for Your Favorite Trainer with Chuck Campbell. An informative guide to those individuals who want to find the perfect gift for their favorite classroom trainer.
  • Reindeers Pause: Eight Tiny Lessons in Technical Communication with Ben WoelkA whimsical view at the life of a technical communicator as seen from the sleigh.

But we would love to have (at least) three more participants! Please contact the Program Manager, Kelly Schrank at programs@stc-rochester.org to sign up.


5:30–6:00 Reception and Cash Bar
6:00–7:00 Great food. Make your food selections when you register.
7:00–8:30 Networking and Lightning Talks


We have booked at Shadow Lake, where we will have a private room downstairs overlooking the lake. Spouses and guests are welcome to attend.


Delicious plated full-course dinners served on linen. Salad, rolls, tea, and coffee served with each menu selection. For dessert, we’ll have cookies & brownies.

Menu Selections

  • Classic Chicken French with Sherry Lemon Butter with Chef’s Choice Vegetables
  • 8 oz Grilled Pork Chop with Roasted Apple Chutney and Cider Dijon Cream with Chef’s Choice Vegetables
  • Herbed Breadcrumb Haddock with Buerre Blanc Sauce with Chef’s Choice Vegetables
  • Eggplant Stack with Pasta Bundle, Layered with Mozzarella and Marinara

Please indicate your menu choice for dinner when you register.


PPlease get your reservations as soon as you’re able. Though ticket sales will stay open until December 12, there is a human watching the count up to the meeting, and it causes her undue stress to have everyone wait until the last minute to register.  

For more information, contact the Programs Manager, Kelly Schrank at programs@stc-rochester.org.


*For those who have not attended lightning talks, they are 5-minute talks, in which the speaker puts together 20 slides that advance every 15 seconds and then discusses them in front of the group. They are a little bit hectic for the speaker, but a lot of fun for the audience.

Ideas for the seasonal lightning talks include using project management or tech comm skills to get through the holidays, how you get your professional self ready for the new year, handling time off from clients or work, or other work-related stories or advice for your peers.
