Welcome to the 2017-2018 STC-SM Program Year!

A Letter From the President

I hope you enjoyed your summer adventures and activities, but also took some time to unwind and recharge as well. As the warm weather and long days draw to a close, we are hard at work planning some exciting activities and events that we hope will keep you engaged and connected to the techcomm community while continuing to learn, grow, and develop your skills all year long.

Networking events

We organize several networking events across the region each year, which are a great way to connect with other techcomm professionals, talk shop, discuss insights and ideas, and learn about new opportunities in the field. These networking events are casual and anyone is welcome to attend.

  • September – Dinner in Ann Arbor
  • November – Breakfast in Ann Arbor
  • December – Holiday mixer (location TBD)
  • February – Happy hour in Livonia
  • April – Lunch in downtown Detroit

If you don’t see a location on this list that works for you, let us know! If you would like to host a casual networking breakfast, lunch, or happy hour in your area for STC-SM, we can promote the event to our membership and would love to have a council member join you.

STC-SM programs and joint events

We have some fantastic programs in the works for October, November, February, March, and May. If meeting in person doesn’t work for you, we regularly promote webinars hosted by other STC chapters, which you can attend from the comfort of home. Our sister organizations hold events and conferences throughout the year as well, and we work hard to make sure you are one of the first know.

As soon as details become available, we’ll send all pertinent program information to you via email and will post to our blog and social media outlets, so stay tuned! If you are not receiving information about our events via email, please reach out to us and we’ll add you to our list.

Volunteer opportunities

Volunteering is the best way to connect with other chapter members and with the larger techcomm community. Would you like to get more involved? We have plenty of volunteer opportunities and would love to speak with you about them. There is something for everyone, even if you don’t have much extra time on your hands. You can reach out to me directly or speak to any of our other council members to learn more. We hope to hear from you!

Thank you to everyone on the STC-SM council and to all of our volunteers and chapter members. You are the lifeblood of the STC and we couldn’t do what we do without you!

Please reach out to me or to any one of the STC-SM council or volunteer members and let us know what you would like to see, learn, or do to help us contribute to the STC mission and vision. The STC-SM chapter is here to serve you!
