We are the Silicon Valley Chapter of the Society for Technical Communication (STC), the professional organization for technical and professional writers.
STC advances the theory and practice of technical communication across all user abilities and media so that both businesses and customers benefit from safe, appropriate, and effective use of products, information, and services.
Improve your career prospects!
We know that you want to grow your capabilities, keep current, and develop your future professional prospects!
STC Silicon Valley hosts technical and educational meetings and professional development events to help you grow your skills and capabilities.
Attend a meeting… or present at one! Show that you’re working to advance your career technically as well as those soft skills that make you valuable to your employers, clients, and peers
Demonstrate your professionalism!
Your membership and engagement with your local professional organization shows you take your career seriously.
Your commitment to your professional growth is a demonstration of your quality to current and prospective employers and peers alike.
Want to show the world your work is award winning? The Northern California STC chapters offer an annual writing competition called Touchstone.
Strengthen your network!
You are not alone! There are a lot of professional and technical writers in Silicon Valley.
STC Silicon Valley members share new opportunities, knowledge, experience, and can lend our support when other members need it.
When your network is strong, your opportunities are great. These are people who know your strengths and your capabilities and can support you and back you up!
Volunteering is a great way to meet other Silicon Valley Chapter members and expand your contacts.
Volunteering helps you grow new skills and enhance your resume with leadership experience. As a volunteer-run organization, you can take on as many, or as many different roles, as fit your goals for professional skill development! Develop your own capabilities while you help STC-SVC create and run successful chapter projects!
