You are on LinkedIn…now what?

May 14, 2009

Beverly Cornell, Director of Marketing and Sales, IteroText Translation Services

The Southeastern Michigan Chapter of the Society for Technical Communication (STC/SM) will offer a program entitled “You are on LinkedIn…now what?” on Thursday, May 14, hosted at the company RelWare, in Farmington Hills, MI.

Ms. Beverly Cornell, Director of Marketing and Sales at IteroText Translation Services, will speak about new social media/communication technologies with a focus on LinkedIn, and how technical communicators might realize the potential of these technologies professionally. In addition, as this is the final program to cap off the 2008-2009 STC/SM Program Season, we will also have a brief award and volunteer appreciation ceremony.

Please consider attending this excellent opportunity for learning and networking, while helping us celebrate as we close another successful chapter term. For more information or if you have any other questions, send an e-mail to the STC/SM Registration Coordinator.
