What is happening at the #STC16 Leadership Program?

The STC CAC invites all leaders past, present and future to join us for a morning of connecting and learning. Please join us for the #STC16 Leadership Program on Sunday May 15, 2016 from 8:00 am – 12:30 pm PDT at the Anaheim Marriott Platinum 3 & 4.

This year’s program will be a little different and for good reason.

You spoke out. We listened!

After the #STC15 Leadership Program in Columbus, you gave us lots of great feedback. You spoke out about what you liked. You spoke out about what you didn’t like. We received suggestions about how to improve the program and we listened. This year’s program will incorporate many of your suggestions.

Community basics

This year’s program includes a focus on the basics. What is a community and how on earth do you run one? We will learn about resources available to leaders, including the Community Handbook, the Treasurer’s Handbook, email lists, social media, and networking.

Fill Your Toolbox

We will take a look at tools for organization: Dropbox, Google Apps for Nonprofits, and OneDrive. We will dive into web development using WordPress and we will address social media: Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram, SnapChat, and Hootsuite.

Breakout Sessions

Our breakout sessions will include Adobe Connect, CAA application, social media, and succession planning.

Pacesetters

Award winning communities will share their superpowers. Presentations include “Framing a Gala Event that Sponsors want to Support!” by the Chicago Chapter, “Using Targeted Contact Lists for Reaching Writers in Your Area” by the Rochester Chapter, and “Using STC Webinars as a Springboard for Networking Events” by the Southeastern Michigan
Chapter.

It’s FREE to all STC members

Best of all, this new improved program will be free of charge to all STC members. Many thanks to the Conference Committee for making this happen.

Networking

The Leadership Program agenda has time set aside for one-on-one networking and ice-breaker activities. During the breakout sessions, you’ll have the opportunity to chat with your group about their superpowers and kryptonite. Come armed with a pile of business cards and swap contact information with the crew.

Resources

At the Leadership Program, you’ll pick up a pile of handouts and collect an assortment of Web links. Each of the presenters at the breakout sessions will bring their supporting material to share with attendees. The Community Affairs Committee (CAC) will give you a tour of our online resources, webinars, email lists, outreach team, and Body of Knowledge. Leave room in your suitcase for resources and swag.

Inspiration

Hearing your fellow professionals talk about the great things happening in their communities will inspire and energize you. You’ll be surrounded by some of the brightest and best innovators in the #TechComm profession. As we announce award winners, you’ll catch some of the excitement and pride of a job well done. Come out and celebrate the accomplishments of a great 2014-2015 with us as we gear up for more success in 2016.
