Your STC New England Council, the first full Council in… well let’s just say a few years, is a motivated and dedicated group of people. They are the people who are creating the momentum that you’ve seen lately. They are bringing fresh ideas to our organization and looking at what we do with fresh eyes. A lot of new ideas have already been implemented and there are more to come.
Have you been to a program meeting lately? The monthly programs have a new energy and excitement to them. There are new faces and some faces that we haven’t seen for some time. We have students coming from local colleges and universities. We have job announcements (yes, you read that right!) We are the best source of networking for anyone who falls under the wide umbrella of “technical communicator,” if you haven’t been to a meeting at the Burlington Garden Inn lately, you really don’t know what you’re missing.

Try the Scribbling Tipplers social hour. We meet the second Wednesday of the month at Waxy O’Connor’s in Lexington, MA. It’s a great Irishish pub with good food and plenty of libations. This is an informal gathering and everyone is welcome — just show up and ask for the STC table. And see John Sgammato’s description of the December fest!

Have you heard about the return of InterChange?
InterChange is back…again! Last year we held the first regional conference Boston had seen in 11 or 12 years (there was much discussion about how many years it had been, we settled on 11 or 12.) In 2014, InterChange is growing to be a 2-day event with speakers coming in from all over the country.
Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn, oh my!
STC New England is one of the most active STC chapters on social media. Looking for a job? We tweet them. Looking to connect with other writers both local and global? Like our Facebook page. Need to hire someone? Check out our followers on LinkedIn. If you’re not using social media, this is an easy way to get started.
If you have never been to one of our events, or if you just haven’t been in a while, I invite you to join us. Come say hello, introduce yourself, and be a part of the new STC New England.
I look forward to seeing you there.
