About the Webinar

STC leaders, your community members want to get together. Let’s make it happen. Using tools like Eventbrite, Basecamp, and Google Drive, our speakers have collectively planned nearly 200 STC events and will share their lessons learned with you.

We will discuss everything from how to get ideas for a good event, to setting up the event online, printing out name badges, and finally paying the speaker. Bring your experience and join in the discussion. Bring your questions and get answers from all attendees.

About the Audience

This presentation is for STC community leaders, past, present, and future. Whether you hope to plan face to face meetings or online webinars, you will learn some tips and tricks (and mistakes NOT to make) from the speakers and attendees.

About the Webinar

STC communities (both geographic chapters and SIGs) sometimes struggle to provide meaningful educational programming for our members and constituents. Unfortunately, it’s not always easy to identify local subject matter experts or seasoned presenters. Winter brings another set of challenges, as travel to in-person meetings can be difficult in Canada and the northern United States.

Join Ben Woelk, Spectrum Conference co-chair and former program manager for STC Rochester, as he discusses a virtual techcomm showcase model that enables multiple chapters to participate in programming, both as attendees and by providing presenters.

We’ll also discuss possible opportunities for community collaboration in 2017-18, so bring your ideas!

About the Audience

This webinar is for all STC community leaders, who are encouraged to register and attend online or watch the recording.

About the Speaker

Ben Woelk, CISSP, CPTC, is an Associate Fellow of the Society for Technical Communication, where he currently serves as Scholarship Committee Chair and Vice President of the Rochester Chapter. Ben is the author of Shockproofing Your Use of Social Media: Staying Safe Online (available on Kindle). You can connect with Ben on Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter.
