Current Needs


The STC Rochester mentoring program needs mentors who can share their professional expertise with students, new technical communication practitioners, and others interested in a career in technical communication. For more information about the mentoring program see our Call for Mentors and contact Chuck Campbell, mentoring@stc-rochester.org

Spectrum 2017

Work is starting on the Rochester Chapter’s premier educational event — Spectrum 2017, to be held in March of 2017 on the RIT campus.

We invite you to join us as a volunteer, to plan and deliver a great educational experience. There are lots of jobs, both large and small. We need committee chairs, committee members, and one-time and short-term helpers. Volunteers will receive reduced or even free admission to the conference!

Spectrum is not only a terrific educational opportunity for technical communicators — it’s a chance for you to help us build on the successful tradition of this conference. Over the last few years, Spectrum has attracted increasing regional interest, drawing outstanding presenters from around the U.S. and Canada, as well as attendees from outside Western New York.

If you’re interested in learning more about how you can grow your skills, meet new people, and make a major contribution to the western New York technical communication community and beyond, contact the Spectrum co-chairs, Ben Woelk and Frances Nardia, at spectrum@stc-rochester.org

Web Team

We are looking for volunteers who are interested in providing content or learning WordPress and helping maintain both the STC Rochester and Spectrum conference sites. If you’d like to gain some marketable experience or create content, contact Ben Woelk at webmaster@stc-rochester.org
