Personally, I think so, but I go to the national and regional
conferences, and I'm inolved locally, so I'm in a different situation
For me, the other alternatives were ASTD (too soft-skils oriented) and
ISPI. But I started as a writer, so I got comfortable with STC.
I know that Andrew Plato and others hold opinions that differ from mine.

Well, the Region 7 conference will be in Vancouver next fall, FWIW.
