We are happy to have several new faces join our roster! Welcome FTC’s Spring 2021 leadership team:
President – John Clement
Vice President – Caitlyn Hunter
Secretary – Skye Smith
Treasurer – Angela Kafka
Historian – Claire Arendas
Communications Committee – Caitlyn Hunter & Rebecca Navas
Website Committee – Ben Bowles
We are enthused to have this new and expanded team. We have already begun planning out great programs and events to come this semester, and we intend to go above and beyond with them.
Next semester, things will be back in full swing. That includes our biweekly general body meetings. Expect our first one to be on the first week of classes.
We also have sneak peeks for two big events next semester:
As we announced at our Spring Planning meeting, on President’s Day weekend FTC will be a participant at Otronicon, an interactive tech expo by the Orlando Science Center. Companies such as EA, Lockheed Martin and Disney attend the expo each year to present workshops and show off new technology. FTC received the opportunity to be one of the clubs at UCF to also host a virtual workshop at the conference. There, we intend to teach student attendees about the field of technical communication. If you are interested, next semester the FTC leadership team will be looking for members to volunteer at the workshop alongside us. We look forward to revealing more as we get closer to the event.
Next up is FTC’s flagship event, the Joint FTC-STC Annual Meeting. This meeting brings in professional technical communicators to network with students and present on a variety of technical communication topics. It is a great opportunity to make connections and learn tips that will help you prepare for your future career. If you want to learn more, check out this recap article about the event from this recent February.
If you ever have a suggestion for a meeting or topic, we’d love to hear it; just send us an email at [email protected] or drop a message on our Discord server.
