The Florida Chapter of the Society for Technical Communication has many volunteer opportunities, and we would like you to get involved! We want to invite all members to share their knowledge and skills by joining the Administrative Council, serving on a committee, or taking on a project. We encourage you to deepen your engagement with STC and your peers. As we have grown to welcome members across the state of Florida, we have the opportunity to invite volunteers to participate online as well as in person.

About the Chapter
The Florida Chapter was formed in 1977 and is dedicated to serving the needs of technical communicators in Central Florida and beyond. You can learn more about our chapter’s rich history on our Chapter History pages.
The Florida Chapter of the Society for Technical Communication has a long history of distinction within the society. It accomplishes this by providing its members with:
- An outlet for networking, fellowship, and sharing of information among like-minded technical communicators.
- Recognition as a member of an active, community-minded professional association.
- Information regarding technical communication employment opportunities in the central Florida area.
- Professional leadership opportunities.
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. You can read more about those initiatives on our Education page.
Whether you are new to the industry or feel it’s important to give back to your profession in the form of service, mentoring, and volunteerism, we welcome you to our chapter!
