STC Chicago is Community of the Year

It is with pride and honor that we announce that STC Chicago was named STC’s 2017 Community of the Year! The announcement was made at the Honors Reception at the annual STC Summit that took place last week at Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center in Washington, DC. Our citation reads:

“For a truly impressive 2016 Community Achievement Award year, packed with many strong programs, including your continued growth and success with the annual Chicago eLearning & Technology Showcase. STC Chicago is a solid example of a successful STC chapter that fosters communication, education, and outreach in the technical communication profession.”


In addition, STC Chicago has once again earned the title of 2017 STC Platinum Community, an STC Community Achievement Award for activities, programs, growth, and outreach during the 2016 program year. Our CAA citation reads:

For endless promotion of the Society, trailblazing list of programs, active community outreach, and systematic planned leadership transition. For coming up with innovative ideas for education promotion and formulating the Volunteer Incentive Program.”


And, to make the perfect trifecta, we are also excited to announce that STC Chicago has been named a 2017 Pacesetter Community. Our Pacesetter citation reads:

For your excellent Volunteer Incentive Program (VIP) that encourages and rewards an active membership at all levels of involvement.”

Many thanks to EVERYONE involved in making STC Chicago a success!
