We are pleased to announce that Content Philosopher Joe Gollner will keynote the Spectrum 2017 regional conference! Join us as we explore how our role as Technical Communicators is changing. Joe is a pioneer in the field of Content Management, and has most recently advanced the idea of Content 4.0 at events such as TCWorld in Stuttgart. Content 4.0 provides a way to understand what Communicators will be asked to produce in the future.
“For the times they are a-changin,’” Bob Dylan famously sang. Changes present challenges. For Joe Gollner, what is more important about these changes than the challenges they represent are the opportunities they provide. Joe sees an opportunity, and even a need, for Technical Communicators to play an expanded role in helping the next generation of organizations operate and adapt to a digital economy. Widely acknowledged as one of the world’s leading content strategists (https://mindtouch.com/…/announcing-top-25-content-strategis…), Joe will help us kick off our exploration of what we can do, both individually and collectively as a community of professionals, to make the most of the changes that are unfolding all around us.

I enjoyed reconnecting with so many former colleagues. The topics and conference were worthwhile, the presenters were great, and the camaraderie was fantastic! - Sandy Glanton, Former STC Member and current small business owner of Projects Accomplished!
The topics at Spectrum 2015 were very applicable to my work and will help in furthering my career. I can't wait to put the things I learned into practice!

Well organized to the last detail, Spectrum 2015 exceeded my expectations! Captivating speakers, appealing venue and plenty of networking opportunities. Thank you STC Rochester for a fun and worthwhile conference. - Elaine Shepardson Lanni
This conference was a great opportunity to catch up with old friends and meet new ones. Leadership day offered a lot of great information we could all use, regardless of whether we are a current leader. The conference day (Monday) may have looked like a long day on the schedule, but it was jam-packed with so many great sessions, plus opportunities to relax, breathe, and have fun, that the day went by in a flash! Spectrum is truly well-organized and well-executed. I highly recommend the Spectrum conference to re-charge your career and STC spirit. - Tricia Spayer, STC Associate Fellow (Cleveland, OH)
Attending Spectrum is an amazing learning experience! It exposes me to new ideas and trends and the people are so welcoming! Great event! - Hannah Morgan, CareerSherpa.net
Spectrum is a fantastic example of a well-organized and terrific regional conference! - Li-At Rathbun President, STC Santa Barbara chapter Co-Manager, STC Technical Editing SIG

This year's Spectrum was my first. I found it both enjoyable and informative. Speakers were excellent. Events were well organized and the venue's were great. Volunteers running the event and attendees were gracious and helpful. I hope to develop long-lasting relationships with many of them. - Michael Van der Gaag, Speaker Consultant: Beyond the Interface
I had a great time at Spectrum 2016! There were a wide variety of topics and learning experiences, whether you are an experienced professional or just getting started. It's also a great networking event where I am fortunate to have made life-long professional connections and friendships. I encourage anyone in the technical communications industry to attend next year. What you get out of the conference is well worth the investment. - Jan Peartree, Technical Communications Manager, Novatek Communications, Inc.
