About STC Rochester

  • Founded in 1958, the Rochester Chapter of the Society for Technical Communication is based in upstate New York. Although most of our members live and work in the metropolitan Rochester area, we are geographically diverse, with members living in several surrounding counties. STC-Rochester serves the needs of its members by:

    • Promoting professionalism and the exchange of information among its members
    • Providing educational opportunities for both members and non-members
    • Educating the community on the value of technical communication

    Our membership includes writers, editors, graphic designers, business owners, managers of corporate publications department, educators, and students. With more than 6,000 members worldwide, STC is the largest professional organization devoted to the advancement of the theory and practice of technical communication.

    Our members provide a wide range of technical communications services within a variety of industries, such as computer hardware and software, photographic imaging, medicine and health care, telecommunications, community service, and education.

    In April 2009, we celebrated the 50th anniversary of our chapter’s technical communication conference, Spectrum, the longest running of its kind in the area.
