Our Response to Coronavirus

image of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)

We understand that we share a responsibility to protect our families and communities from the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) threat. The health and safety of our Florida chapter members and guests is our top priority, and we want to make sure we do our part to help prevent the spread of this disease. As you know, the current situation does not allow us to meet in person, but thanks to the hard work of your Florida Chapter STC Administrative Council, we are able to bring you exciting programs online.

As we face concerns about the coronavirus outbreak and how to remain safe, our STC Florida chapter meetings will be 100% virtual for the time being. Beyond that, please follow the guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Building and Sustaining Your Community by Training New Leaders – webinar

Dan Voss and John Clement

Tuesday, 30 June 2020 2:00 p.m. to 2:45 p.m. EDT

We hope you will be able to join us this Tuesday for the next event in the STC 2020 Leadership Program from the Community Affairs Committee this coming Tuesday. Two of our own chapter members, Dan Voss and John Clement, will be sharing a presentation on several of the outstanding programs our chapter has to offer. 

We invite all STC Florida members to join us as Dan and John discuss successful programs our chapter has found effective in building and sustaining our community over the past 25 years:

  • Online Community-building Resources Toolkit
  • Student Mentoring Program
  • Leadership Development Program
  • Active Membership Program
  • Scholarships Program
  • Sharing STC Conference Learnings
  • Annual Meeting at UCF

In this webinar, other STC communities can learn how to adapt and implement these programs for their members. The 2020 Leadership Program events are free and open to all STC members.

Update on the 2020 STC Summit

Based on the evolving COVID-19 situation within the country, including Washington’s Governor Inslee issuing an emergency proclamation that limits large events, as well as a growing number of travel bans and restrictions among the tech comm community, STC has made the decision to transition the 2020 face-to-face Technical Communication Summit & Expo to a virtual conference format this Spring.

More details about the online conference will be posted on the STC Notebook moving forward.
