A few weeks ago, I wrote a lengthy analysis document for the members of the STC-Montreal administrative council. In it, I described how STC-Montreal has connected with its audience and volunteers over the years, and described ways how we might do a better job of that in a revamped organization.
I’m now in the process of rewriting that document into a proposal for a general audience. I hope to have it done in the next day or two. It will be posted here.
I believe that the core value of encouraging the professional development of technical writers is worth carrying over into a new organization. I also think that there’s a lot of cruft in STC-Montreal that a new organization could do without.
