Virtual Party, too!This year, we’d like to try something new. We’d like to combine our VOH with a virtual party (VP), where we would encourage all attendees to share a photo or story. The VP (not be confused with Vice President!) we hope will add a very human, personal side to our VOH. Hey, it is all about making real, enduring connections!
About the webinarThe webinar will be recorded so feel free to watch with us online and then rewatch at your leisure. No need to take notes. If you cannot attend, sign up anyway so that you will get a link to the recording. See the 2015 VOH recording and slides on our website. See the 2014 VOH recording on Adobe Connect.

Do you know someone who might be interested in joining STC? There's no better time to join STC and our SIG, or renew STC membership! The STC new/renewed member recruitment race is now on, and goes through and May 6, 2016. Communities receive credit when someone joins or renews online and notes the community that referred them. Here's how it works: When recruiting a member, have them include the name of your chapter or SIG on the online application -- in our case, the IDL SIG. The referral field is found under the Membership tab. Your community must be listed on the application to receive credit.
- One point is awarded for each member in any of these four categories: Classic, New TC Professional, Student, or Gold Value Package.
- Corporate Value Package (CVP) members are worth one point for each team member. For example, if five new members join or renew from one company as a CVP, your community receives five points.
