STC Canada West Coast chapter officers hold office from June 1 to May 31 each year. At the April 22, 2017, annual general meeting, we’ll be holding elections to fill these positions for the coming year.
The current Vice-President, Serena Back, will move into the President’s role on June 1. The current President, Stephen Gauer, will become Past President.
We’re now actively seeking members in good standing to put their names forward for the positions of Vice-President, Secretary, and Treasurer. The Vice-President elected for 2017/18 will move on to the President’s position in the following year.
These are busy but rewarding jobs that give you the opportunity to work with and learn from a group of dedicated people, and to make a positive contribution to your professional community.
If you’d like to nominate someone or volunteer yourself to run for office, or if you want more information, please contact Heather Sommerville, Volunteer Coordinator, at volunteer (at) stcwestcoast (dot) ca.
This is an all-hands meeting to discuss upcoming events and seminars, welcome all volunteers, and review the work that needs to be done to keep our chapter moving forward in serving our community of writers. If you are interested in finding out what’s happening, have some ideas you’d like to share, or would like to know what volunteer opportunities are available, please join us. Your input is very important to us.
All chapter members, volunteers, and non-members who are volunteers are welcome to attend. This is a great way to network and work with other technical communication professionals.
