Corrigo welcomes Nicolette Angel and Linda Branam as the newest members of the Corrigo staff. They joined our volunteer staff in February as acquisitions editors and will be responsible for recruiting articles for our quarterly publication.
The STC annual conference is an excellent time to attend great workshops and meet your fellow technical communicators. It also offers two special opportunities to communicate your interests and contribute your insights to meet other TE SIG members as well as the SIG leadership. To entice you to join us in Dallas, I’ve compiled a list of the events of special interest to editors. To learn more details or to register for the conference, visit the conference Web site at www.stc.org/50thConf/index.asp.
