This is a great regional conference that is local to me. As President of the Rochester chapter of the Society for Technical Communication, I have some official responsibilities for this event as well as some pet projects I have maintained since being co-chair myself (2015 and 2016).
One of my favorite parts of the event is recognizing my energetic and selfless volunteers with chapter and Society-level awards during the Speaker Dinner and Awards Ceremony on Sunday night. There is a short slideshow of me awarding them below.
During the conference, I presented a Spotlight Talk on Using Checklists to Increase Consistency and Productivity in Communications Tasks. Due to time constraints, I rushed through it a bit but I got some good feedback. My slides are on SlideShare and my other resources include an infographic on How to Create an Editing Checklist and signing up for my May webinar on the same topic from STC.
Next on the agenda is Conduit next week, where Todd DeLuca and I will present a session called Ready to Pivot, Advance, or Change? Use Side Gigs to Move Your Career Forward. And then on May 9, I will present Using Checklists to Increase Consistency and Productivity in Communications Tasks as a webinar for STC.
