The STC Florida chapter will host a tech comm tools meeting on September 22 at 6:30 pm EST. We know many of our chapter members use various tools every day and have picked up a variety of useful shortcuts and best practices. We are looking for people to join us for a short presentation on tips and tricks for a software application you use at work. For example, if you use Arbortext, Microsoft Project, or anything that helps you complete the tasks needed for your job, please join us to give a mini-presentation (10-15 minutes). We currently have speakers for MadCap Flare and Snagit.
Please fill out the form below by Wednesday, August 31, if you are interested in sharing your knowledge and perspective. Presenters will need a webcam and microphone. We ask that all presenters prepare a few slides or screen share to walk through tips for attendees. Networking begins at 6:30 PM Eastern Standard Time, and presentations start at 7:00.
