Summit Overview

May 17-19, Minneapolis, MN

In 2024, STC is excited to offer a Summit experience that breaks the mold, providing more opportunities to network and learn from fellow practitioners, dive deeper into intensives on important topics, and keep up with the industry. This in-person event will provide knowledge-building, skill-building, and networking building every hour of the day to meet the ongoing educational needs of technical communication professionals.

This year, we will carefully curate the Summit program from a combination of invited guests and speakers, proposals from peers and industry leaders, and STC resources to ensure you’re getting the best ideas, insights, how-tos, and inspiration.
