STC Announcements

My STC Network is a platform for networking, collaboration, communication, community management, and more. It combines the knowledge-sharing capabilities of a professional network with the interactivity and user experience of a social network. To experience the My STC Network, please visit this announcement.

Due to the overwhelming response to the April issue of Intercom being open, STC has made the May issue of the magazine open to the public. Please share with interested colleagues, and be sure to invite them to join STC so they can get this kind of quality publication all year long!

As you’d remember, at the STC Annual Business Meeting, Hillary Hart was officially installed as President and Alan Houser as Vice President of STC. Short video interviews with Hillary and Alan are captured here.

Two communities and two members of the STC staff recently were named winners in APEX 2011. APEX Awards are based on excellence in graphic design, editorial content, and the ability to achieve overall communication excellence. Read more here.
