This month’s topic is Leadership! Have you wondered why you’ve never been tagged to lead that big project or why no one sees that you could be a leader? We’re going to examine what it takes to make other people see the leader within you and give you specific steps to take to start taking on leadership opportunities within your organization.
Vote on Which Day of the Month to Meet
During this meeting we’ll be voting on the best day of the month to continue to meet on. If you have thoughts on this matter and can’t attend on this date, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
About Lone Writer Lunches
Whether you work alone with bunny slippers, or commute each day to an office as the token technical communicator, or you are one of many in a large company with a team of writers, now’s your chance to close the door, grab a bag lunch, and talk to others who like yourself, occasionally like to talk to others who care about documentation.
We’re going to schedule these for the next three months and try out the idea. I may also schedule some in person lunch sessions for those people who would actually like to get away from their desks.
You will need to register for each session to attend. Any one is welcome and the initial cost is free. I, (Lin Laurie, current STC President) will moderate/facilitate the meetings and will also run the meeting tool (Zoom). The first one will be an open topic meeting and we’ll start out discussing the state of STC and it member benefits before making it wide open. At the end of the first meeting we can all suggest topics for the next meeting and attendees can vote on the topic. If you feel you want to do a talk, then we attendees just need to approve it.
I used to do these monthly when I worked at Intuit and they were great for bringing people together, getting questions answered, and supporting people who felt alone. By offering this to any STC member or any subscriber to our newsletter, we have the opportunity to offer this to many more people and possible bring in new members.
I look forward to seeing and hearing you during the upcoming webinars.
Tuesday, February 13th, from 12-1 pm PST (Other time zones are welcome to join.)
There will not be a recording of these sessions.
