PSA: Make Sure You’re an STC Chicago Member!

Did you know that you may not be a current member of the Chicago Chapter, even though you are a current STC member living and working in the Chicago area?

Many STC members assume that renewing their membership automatically includes membership in their local chapter, but unless you actively “opt in” to chapter membership when joining STC or renewing, you are not added to the chapter member list, and you may be missing out on the benefits of chapter membership.

These benefits include being able to vote in chapter elections and being notified of chapter events and activities.

You can verify your current membership status at – and you can a chapter to your membership at any time.
Here’s how:

  1. Log in at
  2. Click the My Communities tab.
  3. Click Add Communities.
  4. Check the check boxes for the chapters and special interest groups (SIGs) that you want to join. Chapters are listed on the left, in alphabetical order, so look for STC Chicago (“Chicago Metro”) in that list.
  5. Click Continue to proceed with checkout.

It’s that easy! If you have any questions or encounter any difficulties, you can contact Stacey O’Donnell at or 703-552-4114 for assistance.

Please visit today and make sure that you are getting the full benefits of your STC chapter.
