It serves as a public relations tool for chapter members and others who want to know about events such as competitions, meetings, workshops, and seminars / webinars sponsored by the chapter and by the Society for Technical Communication.
The chapter provides chapter members with networking tools such as the Chat discussion list; the Events & News site; the Announcements mailing list; and several social media groups such as LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter. Tools are provided for the technical communicator in the form of links to Web resources for developing technical materials, information about the career of technical communication, job announcements, ability to provide a resume to potential employers, ability to advertise your documentation company, and more.
