Hello fellow STC Technical Editing SIG Members!

First, it’s a delight to announce that the Technical Editing SIG received the Community of Distinction award for 2009-2010! The Community of Distinction award is the highest STC Community Achievement Award (CAA). The citation on the certificate reads as follows: "For effectively providing valuable resources on an outstanding website, innovating new uses of social media, and setting aggressive goals in a challenging year." The Technical Editing SIG also received the Pacesetter Award for 2009-2010. The Pacesetter Award acknowledges a professional or student chapter's contributions to STC goals through a single innovative and effective program or activity. Kudos to the SIG leadership! A special thanks to all the volunteers and participants who make this SIG a vibrant forum for networking and learning.

And, the deadline for the Diane Feldman Technical Editing SIG Scholarship has been extended to May 30!

Now, just a quick update from the newsletter front. We are trying to release the newsletter every two months. We hope that the roundup of articles would be the right mix of a minimum number of articles that you can skim through quickly.

There have been slight delays in the rollout of issues for 2010. However, our effort is to keep it on-course and rollout an issue by the fifth of every other month. We truly appreciation all those who support us in this initiative!

We encourage you to contribute an article for the next issue. Please send us your draft by June 15.
