The STC (Society for Technical Communication) is the world’s largest and oldest professional association dedicated to the advancement of the field of technical communication. We are writers, editors, graphic artists, web content managers, usability experts, consultants, information managers, instructional designers, educators, and students. We work in many industries, including telecommunications, software, semiconductor, financial, engineering, medical, and transportation. The Society has members in almost 50 countries and is continuing to grow rapidly outside of North America and Europe.
The NEO STC (Northeast Ohio Community of the Society for Technical Communication) is one of the most active STC communities in the U.S. The community provides leadership and direction for its members and promotes professional growth through program meetings, workshops/conferences, webinars, book club meetings, volunteer opportunities, mentoring, and networking events.
