Fall Kickoff Meeting - TODAY! Sept. 16, 2008

New Directions

This year, the STC Canada West Coast chapter will focus on thriving and making a difference in our community – earning more money, giving back to the community, reaching out to remote members, and using new technology to thrive as a partly “virtual” chapter.

At our first meeting of the year, a combined remote and on-site meeting will demonstrate the chapter’s commitment to members from out of town, as well as to face-to-face networking for people who attend in person.

Incoming chapter president Karen Rempel will present the chapter’s vision for making a difference in the community and the plans to enhance the chapter’s online presence via forums, wikis, and other “virtual” activities. Then RJ Jacquez, Senior Product Evangelist, Adobe Technical Communication Suite, will demonstrate this commitment by speaking to us from San Diego, CA about the new Adobe Suite.

Following RJ’s presentation, Karen will introduce the volunteers who keep the chapter going. Bring your questions and ideas for new ways to help our chapter thrive as we pursue this new direction!

Register online to view instructions for remote participation.
