Registration for the 1995 Region 5 Conference for the Society
for Technical Communication is still open. Payment can be made
on-site if you call in your registration first.

STC Regional conferences are known to be full of good info and
opportunities at a low cost. One-day registration fees range from
$50 to 80 and two-day registration fees range from $75 to 150,
depending on your student and STC membership statuses.

The Sept. 29-Oct. 1 conference is a two-day conference in Tulsa with
four concurrent sessions on both days, including the Consultants
and Independent Contractors PIC Workshop sessions on Saturday
and the Region 5 Chapter Leadership Workshop on Sunday (free for
attendees). Copies of the Proceedings binders are available
for purchase.

Since the conference is less than 1 week away, I thought I'd
mention various connections that the conference has with our
fair list, techwr-l.

1. Session topics include many that are discussed in this
forum: certification, electronic publishing, writing online help,
telecommuting, getting started in tech writing, self-directed
work teams, what tech comm students need to know about the world
of work, and writing for the WWW.

2. Techwr-l regulars and lurkers are presenting sessions.
These are the ones I know of: Rose A. Wilcox, Larry Kunz,
Binion Amerson, Charlene Strickland, and Karen Steele.

3. Some vendors who have been mentioned on techwr-l will have
booths in our expo and will be raffling or giving away mercandise:
Solutions, Inc., Info Access (Guide), and Cognetics (Hyperties).
(There are several other vendors and donors, also.)

4. Some of the conference planners are techwr-l readers, too. :)

I hope to meet some of you there. For more details, write to me
or look up our WWW site
