What’s new

First annual salary survey
The annual STC salary survey released to members doesn’t include Canada, so we decided to team up with the Toronto chapter and do a survey of our own. More than our 50% of our chapter responded.

Writing a news release
Our latest Techniques post looks at how to write a news release.

Intro to CSS for Madcap Flare users
Our latest Tools article, by Gabriel Forbes, is the second of two articles explaining how Flare uses Cascading Style Sheets for formatting online and print output. Check it out!

Gabriel Forbes takes the Spotlight
Our Vancouver Island coordinator talks about some of the cool projects he’s working on at Reliable Controls in Victoria, his approach to technical communication, and his current creative passion: rock drumming.
