Welcome Back!
The STC NY Metro Chapter is among the most diverse, dynamic, and innovative communities in the Society of Technical Communication worldwide.  The chapter serves the greater New York metropolitan region where New York City is the hub for satellite communities stretching from eastern Long Island, Southwestern Connecticut, Westchester, and Hudson Valley in the north, to Northern New Jersey on the west.

In Q1 2020, New York became the epicenter of a global pandemic sweeping across North America. With the exception of the STC Alliance Competition, chapter member priorities shifted to staying safe and preserving personal, family, and financial well-being.  In a nutshell, What is the STC  Alliance Competition?  2 min. video

Like it's members, STC NY Metro is a survivor. We're resilient. We lead by example.

A New Mindset
In a technology-driven economy, the discipline of technical communication (tech comm) is essential.
Tech comm involves the delivery of clear, consistent, and factual information — often stemming from complex concepts — for safe and efficient use and effective comprehension by users. 

From finding information and navigating on your smartphone to training and instructional materials that help you be productive in your job, tech comm is pervasive. 

Taking The Lead

While tech comm applies to a wide variety of audiences in any industry, in New York the leading industries not only drive New York state's economy; they are leading on a national and global scale.

From financial services, life sciences, health care, and professional services to retail trade, educational services,  government and technology, tech comm takes the lead in collaborating to drive industries forward, innovate, and build thriving and connected communities.

Passion and Purpose

Spanning a technology ecosystem with a very large footprint, the STC NY Metro tech comm community taps into the power of connecting with passion and purpose. If you are passionate about communication, we invite you to join the conversation. 

Connect with us on LinkedIn and visit our special interest groups, volunteer opportunities, and meetups online at www.stcnymetro.org.
