HI all,

I saw this link in one of my LinkedIn groups and was wondering if anyone
else had seen it:

Of the two options in the article -- IEEE's Computer Society vs. ACM --
which do you think would be a better fit for technical writing? I know
that IEEE has a Professional Communication Society, but access to the
"element k" courses seems to be only for the IEEE Computer Society. I
don't know if the list of courses is the same for both options. I was
able to see in the IEEE Computer Society website that there are some
FrameMaker courses and Adobe Captivate, but nothing on DITA, single
sourcing, help authoring, RoboHelp, Flare, etc...

Any thoughts anyone? Does anyone here belong to ACM (instead of STC),
and if so, which SIG did you join?

Thanks and best regards,
