Through the Generations: The Enduring Value of Technical Communication

Through the Generations: The Enduring Value of Technical Communication
Friday, March 26, 2021 at 7:00pm EST

Students preparing for a technical communication career have chosen a profession that matters. Over the years, though, the phenomenal changes in our roles have raised questions about the value that our work can and will provide. In this presentation, Lori will look at the impact of three critical areas on our roles, our profession, and our contributions.

This Friday, our general body meeting will feature a special guest with more than 25 years of experience. Listen to Lori Meyer speak about her career in technical communication and touch upon topics like user advocacy, quality and innovation, and generational identities. Don’t miss out on a professional’s expertise!

Here is the link to the Zoom meeting:

Networking begins at 7:00pm, and the presentation will begin at 7:15pm. Following the presentation, there will be a brief time for Q&A. Attendance is free and no RSVP is required.

We hope to see you there!
