It's ironic that amid discussions about how to show
our value to management, we bash professional
organizations.

At the very least, I think our membership in STC shows
a certain level of commitment to our careers that many
of my coworkers don?t share. For example, I don't see
professional publications or journals on the desks of
the product managers or QA analysts I work with.
There?s a pride of sorts that I feel when I tell my
colleagues that I?m going to a professional conference
or industry workshop.

Granted, membership in and of itself isn?t going to
make or break a career, but it?s one of the many tools
available to us. First-class results (and dare I say,
?deliverables??) will always be the most important.
