Peter Neilson grumbled about certification maintenance:

> I cannot afford to go to any classroom three-days-a-week stuff…. I've not been to any seminar things since about 1985…. Apparently I am no longer a tech writer at all. I don't fit in the box.

I don't think we've firmly defined the "box," but it's going to be a lot bigger than the box you set yourself into. Ongoing professional development activities can include classes, but also seminars, conferences, papers, and chapter programs. They can be STC sponsored or sponsored by other associations, international, national, or local. It's your choice.
