In April, I had the privilege and honor of interviewing Dr. Temple Grandin when she was selected as one of our STC Honorary Fellows for 2015. Here are the links:
As I mentioned in the Notebook blog post, it was a delightful and fascinating conversation, covering a wide range of topics from leg conformation in cattle and cattle chute design, to autism and education, to Web design and mobile, to 3D printing and augmented reality. The power of her observations transcends disciplines and fires the imaginations of everyone from livestock managers to UX designers.

The Society for Technical Communication (STC) is currently holding its annual election for the Board of Directors and Nominating Committee. You can read about the election and candidates at http://www.stc.org/election.
We have a great slate of candidates this year! Please take the time to review their qualifications and to vote.
These positions are key to helping the Executive Director and the staff meet STC’s strategic goals and fulfill its mission statement. Yet, less than 16% of the membership typically votes. Let’s change that this year and increase participation and engagement.
The new Board and Nominating Committee will be sworn in at the annual meeting on 19 May 2014. I will be Society president in 2014-15.
Note: You must be a member in good standing as of 31 January 2014 in order to vote in the Society level elections. If you meet the criteria and did not get an email with voting instructions, please contact the STC office.
