Our Academic Relations committee was busy this past academic year with visits to various classes and schools. The goal is to introduce students to technical communication and promote the Northeast Ohio community of STC. In this effort, Lisa and Janean Voss visited Youngstown State in May to observe their Professional and Technical Writing senior project presentations and interact with these promising students. Lynn visited Lake Erie College’s Learning About Business Conference (LAB) in June and co-led a workshop for high school students titled, “Creating Your Online Brand.” The workshop discussed branding, online presence, and the importance of joining professional organizations such as STC.
The Academic Relations committee is excited to continue promoting technical communication and STC in the coming academic year. The committee is operated by Lisa Mileusnich and Lynn Nickels. Thanks Lisa and Lynn for all your hard work!
