STC could have done so much more to further the professional technical
writer, resulting in less unemployment, higher wages, and greater
professional respect by those outside of the field, instead of just being a
mediocre dues collection engine with little return to those who are the
foundation of this field. It seems to me that if not being a member of the
professional organization does nothing to hinder your advancement in the
field, they are pretty much superfluous and impotent.

I was a member. I was a chapter officer. I'm no worse off now that I'm not.

Shoot...even garage mechanics have a better professional organization (ASE)
behind them.

The ethics thread has revealed considerable hostility towards STC? I have my
own criticism of the organization but I'm not ticked off at it. Why the
juice?
