ANNOUNCE: Register now for the 48th Annual STC Conference!

Planning to attend STC's 48th Annual Conference, May 13-16 in Chicago?
Remember, early registration and hotel reservations will get you reduced
rates. For details, see the conference Preliminary Program, which was
mailed to STC members in mid-February with the March issue of Intercom.

If you did not receive a Preliminary Program, you may access the same
information on the STC office Web at www.stc-va.org. On the main page,
select "Conferences" for general conference information. From there, you
can access registration information and deadlines by selecting "To Do"
list. This site features the most recent, updated conference information.

We look forward to seeing you in Chicago!

ANNOUNCE: Bill Hackos' Managing Your Documentation Projects Workshop:

Another project successfully completed! You met your deadline
and came in 15% under budget! Everyone's so happy! Your staff
has been dropping in all day to thank you for your great
management effort. Rumors are circulating about big bonuses.
You cheerfully whistle as you file your document plans and
drafts away for archive. You smile as you calculate your
productivity ratios, noting that once again they have improved.

You jerk awake as the 500-page new specification hits your
desk, dropped from three feet by an overly tired and grumpy
engineer. "We've made a few changes. No time to go over it.
You'll just have to figure it out."

Is your imagination running wild? Do your dreams seem out of
reach? Plan to attend "Managing Your Documentation Projects,"
an exceptional two-day workshop conducted by Bill Hackos,
Vice-President of Comtech Services and an internationally known
expert on information design and human productivity. Learn how
to control your projects so you can sleep better at night.
Pleasant dreams!

The TECHWR-L Daily Summary Mailing, a separate mailing list
that summarizes new content posted to Employment Central and
the Calendar, is now available and can further help get your
message out to interested people:
http://www.raycomm.com/techwhirl/daily-announce-info.html

These resources are available at no cost to anyone, posters
or seekers, TECHWR-L subscribers or not. We encourage you to
regularly use these free services.
