For those who could not attend the annual STC Summit, this meeting will have four members each give a 15-minute presentation on their best takeaways from the Summit. They will share their thoughts on specific sessions, the Summit as a whole, and on the advantages of professional conferences in general.
Linda Jansak will talk about the non-educational sessions and events, including networking sessions, the vendor expo, special group lunches, keynote speakers, the annual board meeting, and the honors reception.
MK Grueneberg will talk about the value of continuing education at any level of your career. No matter where you are on your career path, there is always something to be learned – especially in an ever-changing field like Tech Comm.
Linda Kelley will share key take-aways from the educational sessions she attended.
Chris Hester will wrap up with a discussion of the “value vs cost” of a conference and how to assess/justify attending (i.e., how to build a case for going).
