STC Conference Activities
The Technical Editing SIG is active at every STC annual conference. The 2017 Summit takes place 7-10 May at the Gaylord National Resort in Washington, DC.
We will be updating this page to include our activities at the upcoming Summit. Until then, you can read about 2016.
Technical Editing SIG & Summit 2016As always, we will be active at Summit 2016 in Anaheim. Here are some TE SIG and technical editing events:
- TE SIG table at the Welcome Reception & Expo Hall Grand Opening, Sunday, May 15 (7:00 pm - 8:30 pm)
- NEW this year: SIGs will host tables during the grand opening. Visit the TE SIG table to say hello, learn more about the SIG, and play the word game Perquackey for fun and prizes. Itâ€™s easy to learn. Test your word skills against other Summit attendees. The SIG also has surprise give-aways.
- TE SIG Business Meeting, Monday, May 16 (11:00 am â€“ 12:00 pm)
- Youâ€™re invited to learn more about the TE SIG and opportunities to become involved with the SIG. This year we have scheduled time for socializing and networking. Refreshments will be served.
- Technical Editing Progression, Monday, May 16 (9:45 am â€“ 10:30 am)
- The STC Summit Programming Committee is offering a technical editing progression this year. Attendees choose two sessions from the following: editing in the financial industry, building productive working relationships with SMEs, improving the review cycle, editors as collaborators, and using checklists for efficient editing. Many presenters are TE SIG members.
We look forward to meeting you at the Summit!
