I started my career in technical communications on the West Coast four years ago. When I moved back to my home town of Syracuse and began working remotely, I looked into joining the STC, but believed the nearest chapter was in Rochester. I didn’t know about the CNY Chapter until Bobbi Werner personally reached out to me over LinkedIn and invited me to the August 21st event on component content management systems. My company isn’t currently using a CCMS, but we’d like to in the future. It was great to see demos of the systems Inficon and Welch Allyn use, and to hear perspectives on systems other writers have worked with. It was also great to network with other technical writers in the area. The vibrant conversation continued into dinner, where we all met at Joey’s and enjoyed a fantastic meal. Joining the STC CNY Chapter was a no-brainer! Thank you, Bobbi, for connecting with me!
