Next STC-SF chapter meeting:
Wednesday 20, July 2016
STC-SF presents Neil Lindeman with Meet the New Generation of Technical Writers at SFSU
About the Presentation
Students majoring or minoring in Technical and Professional Writing (TPW) at San Francisco State University are required to do an internship before they can graduate. For many students, the internship is the highlight of their undergraduate education in TPW. Neil Lindeman, the coordinator of SF State’s TPW program, will give a brief presentation and answer questions about sponsoring TPW student interns.
About the Presenter
Neil has been a full-time faculty member at SF State since 2005, and has served as the TPW program coordinator since 2013. He holds a PhD from Iowa State University and, before joining SF State, worked as a technical editor for several years in Washington, DC.

Date and Time
Meetings are held on the third Wednesday of each month, except November and December.
6:00 PM: Networking
7:00 PM: Chapter Announcements and Topic Presentation
Please arrive before 7:00 PM while someone is present at the entrance to let you in. Due to security restrictions, the doors can only be opened by Salesforce employees. If someone is not present at the entrance, please be patient. You can also email email@example.com to alert those inside the meeting or if you will be later than the presentation start time.
Meetings are held in the Salesforce office at 121 Spear St. in the Rincon Center complex bounded by Mission, Howard, Spear, and Steuart Streets.
The entrance to the chapter meetings is near Rincon food court entry doors facing the plaza (not the entry doors on Mission Street). Look for the Salesforce lobby with two bright blue chairs in the corner.
Use either the Howard Street Garage (located between Spear and Steuart) or the garage under the Rincon Center (located on Spear between Mission and Howard). The Rincon Center underground parking garage elevator will take you to the ground floor, on the same side of the building as the entrance to the meeting center.
NOTE that the Howard Street Garage’s rates are lower at night than during the day.
You can take either BART or MUNI and exit at the Embarcadero Station.
To get to the Rincon Center from there:
Turn right and walk down Spear Street, about half-way down the block. Cross the street and enter the plaza about half-way down Spear Street (on the east side of Spear Street). Walk up the steps, and when you see the Dolphin fountain, look left, you’ll see the entrance.
