Watercooler Chat: Technical Editing Progression at the 2016 STC Summit

The TE SIG leadership team needs your help to make a technical editing progression session a reality for the 2016 Summit. Specifically, we are requesting our membership and those interested in editing submit requests to the STC Summit Education Committee to present a technical editing progression topic. The Committee has final approval on the topics.

In addition to promoting the field of technical editing, a progression is a good way to gainexperience and confidence as a presenter.

Please join Ann Marie Queeney, TE SIG Manager and a past progression presenter, for a watercooler chat on progressions. We will discuss what a progression is, submission guidelines, and possible ideas for topics. There will be time for questions.

NOTE: The deadline for submission of your progression topics for the 2016 STC Summit is July 31, 2015.
