I consider joining STC to have been a great decision. Participating in our local chapter has great for me, both professionally and personally.
Since I joined, I have participated in three techcomm competitions (and won an award!), attended many informative webinars, several conferences, and friendly social events, enhanced my technical communications skills, and assumed responsibility within the chapter that allows me to develop social media and networking skills. I will not only be able to do more of all of this in the future, but experiment with other opportunities to give back and benefit the chapter that I could not have otherwise.
While all of this has been great, the biggest benefit has been working with such great people. The members are what make the chapter the dynamic and friendly group that it is. Everyone I have worked with has been helpful and generous with sharing their experiences and knowledge.
In most activities, you get back what you put into it. My experiences with STC have more than borne that out.
