President’s News and Notes

By Leah Scampoli

At the time I’m writing this, it’s the weekend before Thanksgiving. Besides making food shopping lists and dreaming of leftovers, it’s an appropriate time to give thanks to the absolutely amazing volunteer team for the Chapter. Andra, Keith, Marc, Marie, Monica, and Riley make each newsletter sent out, LinkedIn or MySTC article posted, announcement emailed, treasury report created, and meeting organized.

But, we need your help.

In order to give our team some extra time and to allow the Chapter to expand our offerings, we need additional volunteers. We understand that between work and at home time, little time is available. But, there are many opportunities that take only a few hours a month or can be done remotely. In addition, many can be handled by multiple people to spread the load.

Do any of these positions sounds interesting to you? If so, email for additional details.

  • Hospitality Manager
  • Programs Manager
  • Webinar Manager
  • Marketing Manager
  • Assistant to Webmaster
  • Assistant to Newsletter Editor

Building our volunteer base allows us to offer more to the technical writing community in San Francisco. Looking forward to 2014, which always begins to happen at this time of year, we hope to offer even better presentation topics. I am also especially excited that we have been exploring how to offer those who can’t attend the meeting in person to log in remotely to experience the presentation. By offering webinars, we hope to increase our circle of presenters and allow those outside of the Bay Area (or those who can’t always make it into the City that night) the opportunity to join us, albeit virtually.

It should be an exciting year, and I hope you can join us!

Thanks, Leah
