Celebrate with us as we complete the STC Washington, DC-Baltimore (WDCB) chapter’s 2019-2020 Technical Communication Competition with dinner, an awards ceremony, and plenty of time to get to know other local technical communication professionals. The award-winning entries will be on display so that you can see some of the best work in our profession and read snippets of what our judges had to say. Winners will share the secrets to their success when they receive their awards. WDCB will also be giving out its 2019 chapter level awards in recognition of outstanding contributions to the chapter and the technical communication profession. This will be a great opportunity to broaden your network and make new friends.
