President, STC Orlando Central Florida Chapter
Welcome to the Orlando Central Florida STC Web site. We are a chapter of the Society for Technical
Communication (stc.org), a professional organization that advances the theory and practice of technical communication
across all user abilities and media so that both businesses and customers benefit from safe, appropriate, and effective
use of products, information, and services.
Here in Central Florida, we provide programs of interest and value to local practitioners—experienced
- promote best practices
- facilitate networking
- provide educational resources, both within our group and in the wider worlds of business and education.
We are proud of our close ties to the University of Central Florida, which have fostered student-to-professional
transitions and enabled our members and visitors to benefit from knowledge in both the theory and practice arenas.
Whether you are new to the industry or feel its important to give back to your profession in the form of service,
mentoring, and volunteerism, WE WANT YOU! What better way to help others than by sharing knowledge... especially for
those who are new to the field.
