STC Tryout

The STC Tryout is an opportunity for current members to invite colleagues and friends to experience STC at a fraction of the cost of an annual membership.

Since all memberships are prorated, new members will receive all STC benefits for the rest of 2013 at 67% off the annual membership cost. That gives them a taste of all the great benefits for just $75 for the rest of 2013 (for Classic membership). They’ll also be eligible for the limited-time Early Renewal Discount (only available to current members) when they renew for 2014.

What’s In It for You?

You are the greatest testimony to the benefits of being an STC member. By recruiting others, you will:

  • Expand your network of TC professionals
  • Strengthen STC: A vital and growing membership means greater recognition of the TC profession, improved educational and networking opportunities for members, and the advancement of technical communication worldwide
  • Help others succeed in their careers
  • Receive recognition for your recruitment efforts

How It Works

Meet One. Tell a friend, colleague, or employer why you’re a member and why the Society is an indispensable part of your professional development. Let them know that they can join now and receive full membership benefits for the rest of the year at a fraction of the annual cost.

Bring One. Have your referral join STC online. We’ll even waive the regular $30 enrollment fee! New members must include “TRYOUT13” as the promotion code (enter this code into the “Dues Discount” field at the very end of the application; see this screenshot). If they have any questions, please direct them to call +1 (703) 522-4114 or email  

Get Rewarded. Every member you recruit to STC helps strengthen your Society.

This offer is only available through 15 September.

Don’t miss the chance to share the value of STC!
