Subject:Southern California Gets New STC Chapter From:Michael Hyatt <mhyatt -at- ESRI -dot- COM> Date:Thu, 30 Apr 1998 14:11:15 -0700
Technical communicators in Southern California are organizing a new Inland
Empire chapter of the Society for Technical Communication (STC). The
long-awaited chapter will serve those commuting to Orange, Los Angeles and
San Diego counties or employed in the inland region's growing high-tech
sector. Until now, STC chapters in Orange County, Los Angeles, the San
Gabriel Valley and San Diego have been the only options for Inland Empire
society members wishing to attend meetings.
The first chapter meeting has tentatively been set for Thursday, June 18,
at a time and location to be announced. For more information, e-mail
Sharon Burton at sharonburton -at- email -dot- msn -dot- com or call 909-886-0715.
According to Burton, "Starting a new chapter is an exciting opportunity.
This will allow Inland Empire technical communication professionals,
students and academics to more fully participate in the society."
The chapter's proposed boundaries are the 57 freeway and state line (west
to east) and Barstow and Temecula (north to south).
STC membership is open to technical writers, editors, illustrators and
others who work, study, teach or have an interest in any of the many areas
of this wide-ranging field. The STC's Web address is www.stc-va.org.
