I was interested to read your announcement yesterday about the STC meeting
in Kansas City.

I am a technical writer for Black & Veatch in Overland Park, Kansas. My job
is to write paper and on-line manuals for the Windows-based programs
developed by Black & Veatch for B& V engineers and clients. Using
Doc-to-Help and Microsoft Word, I create on-line help systems featuring
context-sensitive help, hot-spot screens and hypertext.

As a relative newcomer to the TECHWR-L list and INTERNET, I have not used
too many on-line resources. However, through the TECHWR-L list, I have
received helpful information on the following topics:
--Reference materials (books) for writing documentation (paper and on-line)
--Salary ranges for technical writers
--PC software for producing on-line help
--Indexing procedures
--Verbs to describe actions performed by the user of a Windows-based
software program
--Career options for technical writers

In addition, I have contributed information on the following topics:
--Terminology for documentation about object-oriented programming
--Discretionary indexing with Doc-To-Help
--A sequential approach to learning programming lanugages
--Shareware for capturing screen images

I would like to learn more about the Kansas City chapter of the STC (e.g.,
enrollment procedures, activities and membership). If you have any general
information about the STC or specific information about the meeting in
March, please forward it to my INTERNET address.

Thank you,

David Johns

I'm planning a program for the Kansas City STC chapter in March titled
"What's Online for Technical Writers?" The program is intended to inform the
members about online resources that can help them in their jobs and careers.
This mailing list will be listed as one of those resources.
I would also like to include more information about this list such as how it
has helped the people who have used it and what they find most valuable
