Volunteer Positions


PMC partners with the New York Metro Chapter for competitions. Each year the chapters divide job rolls between them. Someone in each chapter gets submissions mailed to them. Judging meetings are held. Emails are sent. All of these things rely on people who are interested in running the competition, having fun, and being judgmental. If you want to know how to compete and BE… BE AGGRESSIVE, ask our competition volunteers: [email protected].

Conference Chair

Each March PMC hosts a regional conference. As Conference Chair, you form a committee who will bring that conference to life! Such duties include reviewing submitted presentations, contacting keynote speakers, getting someone to connect with vendors to sponsor the conference, having a volunteer design the conference program, order the food for the conference, and create the conference promotional materials. Additionally you direct someone to update the website with the latest conference information. Delegation here is key. You want to meet the cream of the STC crop, and get them to come to Philadelphia? Then ask the Conference Chair how it’s done: [email protected].

Academic Outreach

Network with area colleges to promote knowledge of our industry among students. To learn about life in the ivy-covered halls and how it interacts with STC, ask our educational liaison: [email protected].

Immediate Past President

Just because you used to be President doesn’t mean you’re off the hook. Your years of wisdom and knowledge need to be shared with the incoming president! When they retire, you can relax. No slacking now! If you want to learn what it was REALLY like to be President back in the good old days, ask the Past President: [email protected]. Warning: stories about going to STC meetings in the snow, uphill, both ways, may ensue.

A Webmaster maintains the chapter emails, makes sure all website components are regularly updated, working with the web hosting company in case of performance issues, uploads presentations to SlideShare and link to them on the website for every meeting and conference, spins a web of any size, catching thieves just like flies, and hopefully puts up better content than this.
