On May 17, 2011 in Sacramento at the STC Summit, Richard Mateosian of the STC Silicon Valley Chapter and leader in the Berkeley chapter has been named Fellow. For years he has helped technical communicators get recognition for the work and now it is his turn. Congratulations to Richard and the other new Fellows!
I worked with Richard for years in the hope that a new generation would take charge. Last night it started. The student members fought for their right to fully participate in STC. I think this is a further sign that the old STC is gone and a new generation will build an organization better suited to their needs. The torch is passed, but because it is California, it must happen in a designated area with proper permits. :-)
