What's Happening in October

Hello STC Austin!

 The TechComm industry loves October and it is coming alive! 

 We are having our first chapter meeting for the 2016 - 2017 season. You can find out time and location under Events and Chapter meetings.

There are also three big conferences happening that you might want to attend.

  • ProComm 2016 - This conference focuses on today's entrepreneurs and how Technical Communicators can deliver messages in the unique spaces they create. Organized by our own  Dr. Hilary Hart and held local here in Austin, this would be a fun one to attend.
  • One Day Workshop, Be the Captain of Your Career This is a one day workshop held in Denton, TX. This extensive workshop will help Technical Communicators find the right job for them. What is unique to this workshop is the mock interview and networking sessions that help you put in to practice what you just learned. Check the page for more.
  • LavaCon 2016 - This annual conference is one of the best in the industry. Packed with educational sessions, always relevant to what is happening today and the best place to see where the future of TechComm is going. 
October looks to be the first in many great months ahead.
