STC needs you because you are generous.
How do I know you are generous? I’ve been watching you online and I see that you love to share information.
- I’ve read your chatty emails
- I’ve seen your social media feeds
- I’ve admired your #foodporn
I’ve read your chatty emails
One of the great benefits of being on the CAC (STC’s Community Affairs Committee) is being on the community leadership email distribution lists. These lists provide a forum for STC community presidents and SIG leaders to discuss the ins and outs of chapters and SIGs.
The discussions we post are robust and lively. We are clearly passionate about the profession, the society, and the future of #TechComm. I love to read through the threads and see what’s going on across the society. Or I should say I love to scan through the thread. Those long emails let me know that you love to share what you know.
Leaders ask questions, send answers, share experience, make recommendations, give encouragement, and hold lively conversations in these email threads. We are stronger together because we are in this together. You know that. You share what you know with your colleagues in the profession. You are generous.
I’ve seen your social media feeds
We are a socially active profession. We are on twitter, facebook, pinterest, linked in, and instagram. We love to share.
We follow the hashtags and have lively conversations there. We post and retweet on #STCorg, #TechComm, and #STCYY. Check these out if you have not yet seen them. Every time you retweet, like, comment, and repost, you generously reset the clock on the shared information, making it available to more of us in the profession.
I’ve admired your #foodporn
If only I could taste what you share. *sigh*
I’d appreciate your support in the election. But more importantly, I want you to say “Yes” to STC. We need you.
