About Us

We are the Southeastern Michigan Chapter of the Society for Technical Communication (STC-SM). Our STC community connects passionate, motivated technical communicators of all levels with resources, opportunities, and most importantly, with each other! We foster growth for one another by mentoring, discussing trends in our profession, providing constructive feedback, expanding and connecting our networks, sharing job postings, and providing leadership opportunities in a supportive environment. Whether you are a student, new to the field, or have decades of experience as a technical communicator, we invite you to join us and enrich our community with the unique perspective only you can provide!

Our members include technical writers, instructional designers, technical editors, business writers, usability professionals, communication managers, professors, students, legal writers, web developers, consultants, and more. While the majority of us live in the metro Detroit and Ann Arbor areas, we leverage technology to offer opportunities for members from outside our region to volunteer and participate remotely. Even if you live outside of Michigan, you are welcome to join us.

Awards and Recognition

Over the years, our chapter has won STC Community Achievement Awards and Pacesetter Awards. Several chapter members have received STC Distinguished Community Service Awards and have been inducted as associate and senior fellows.
