On May 5, 2009 at the Hyatt Regency in Atlanta, Georgia, the STC held its annual awards banquet recognizing achievements in the technical communication profession. Despite two wars, a depression and an epidemic, the show went on. Some things you just can’t stop. All the evidence was presented, all the votes were counted, all the judges decided. The experts agreed. Pat Lufkin and DJ Cline from the Silicon Valley Chapter were made Associate Fellows. For the complete list of winners go to STC.org. Big thanks to Nathaniel Lim for standing in for me at the rehearsal. We are often confused for one another. I hope to be his stand-in someday.
I’ve done just about everything I wanted to do at STC. The challenge now is make sure other people have that opportunity. Since I’ve been president, the Silicon Valley Chapter has increased revenue, cut expenses, seen new membership, raised its visibility in the local community and online. It is my hope that the same thing can be done at the international level. Don’t be surprised if I show up at your local meeting to learn from you.
Right then. Right now. Let the happy dance begin.
