The Society for Technical Communication advances the theory and practice of technical communication across all user abilities and all media. Technical communicators transform complex information into usable content for products, processes, and services in a way people can receive, understand, and use. STC serves its members by identifying and promoting best practices in the field and by demonstrating the economic value delivered by technical communicators. By providing lifelong learning opportunities, we help our members develop their skills and competencies so that they may advance in a variety of career paths.
