Rochester Chapter Earns 2021 Pacesetter Award

STC 2021 Pacesetter AwardThe Rochester Chapter has earned a 2021 STC Pacesetter Award for innovations in 2020. The citation reads:

For your innovative use of Zoom to move your regional STC conference from in-person to virtual, including breakout sessions and social events, increasing the value of your Zoom subscription beyond monthly meetings.

The Rochester Chapter uses its paid Zoom account for Spectrum, as well as three or four other Zoom accounts that are either donated or paid for the month of Spectrum only. This allows the chapter to have four or five “rooms” open for presentations simultaneously. One of the rooms is also open for events that everyone attends. If the registration exceeds 100 people, the Zoom Large Meeting capability is added for one account for the month of Spectrum only.

The chapter appreciates the work of the Pacesetter committee in evaluating the applications, and thanks the committee for this award. The chapter congratulates the other winners of the 2021 Pacesetter Award.
