Related STC Chapters
STC chapters were once grouped into regions. In 2005, the regions were disbanded and individual chapters and special interest groups (SIGs) now work as separate communities. The following are chapters in our former region and other nearby chapters. The Washington, DC – Baltimore (WDCB) Chapter collaborates with these chapters and with others on projects of mutual interest.
