Time to Renew Your STC Membership for 2012!

Renew by November 11 for a chance to win a free Kindle Fire!

The 2012 STC membership season is now open, and the Rochester community looks forward to having you as an STC member in the coming year!

The benefits of STC membership are many: access to award-winning publications, programs for  professional development that include webinars and certificate programs, and the opportunity to build your professional network. In the last year, STC has added important new benefits for members, including:

  • My STC, the new social network just for technical communicators. Now connecting and collaborating with your colleagues is even easier, with whiteboards, live chat, discussions, and more.
  • Access to free archived seminars. STC currently provides access to 38 archived seminars and will be adding more in 2012.
  • STC’s  Technical Communication Certification Program.

As a member of the Rochester chapter, you are part of a strong and vibrant community that has been bringing value to upstate New York area technical communicators for six decades. We offer a series of educational and networking programs throughout the year, as well as our popular annual conference, Spectrum, the longest-running regional conference of its type in STC. In 2011, we earned the STC Pacesetter Award, and we were named an STC Community of Excellence.

Renew your STC membership before Friday, November 11, and you’ll be entered into a drawing to win the new Kindle Fire from Amazon. All members who renew for 2012 by 11:59 PM EST (GMT-5) on November 11 will have a chance to win!

If you renew by January 3, 2012, you’ll get a free copy of the 2012 STC Salary Database when it’s published in July 2012.

Dues for STC membership packages remain the same for 2012 — and the STC SIG Value package actually has a lower price ($295, compared with $375 in 2011).

If you have any questions about your STC membership, please don’t hesitate to contact Lori Meyer, chapter membership manager, at membership@stc-rochester.org.

Stay with us and grow with us! We look forward to seeing you as an STC member in 2012!
