Community

We are active in our community working with organizations like the Society for Technical Communication (STC) as well as regular presenters at conferences around the world.

STC

Technical communication is recognized as an essential part of every organization's competitive strategy.

STC 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.

We'll work with your community to provide events that are educational, entertaining, and provide a revenue source for funding other community events. Read more.
