First-Time Attendees

Is this your first STC Summit? Feeling overwhelmed, unsure of what to do, where to go, and how to start?

The Summit Committee has planned several structured and unstructured events, plus a few surprises, for first-time Summit attendees!

Dedicated Slack Channel

Join STC’s Slack Workspace, where first-time attendees  have their own channel that will answer their questions and maybe be less noisy than the main Summit channel. Follow #summit-first-time-attendees and #summit for announcements and updates, plus ask questions and post pictures.

STC Summit Buddy Program!

It’s back! The STC Summit Buddy Program pairs¬†first-time¬†Summit attendees with¬†returning¬†Summit attendees.¬†Returning attendees provide guidance by sharing insights on navigating sessions, networking, and maximizing opportunities to enhance the newcomers’ conference experience.¬†We hope this program enriches the experience for both parties by fostering camaraderie and facilitating mutual learning among all STC members.

Please respond by May 6, 2024 by completing this form. You must be a registered Summit attendee to participate. We’ll be in touch soon with news about your new buddy!

If you have questions for the committee, please join STC’s Slack Workspace/First Time Attendee channel: #summit-first-time-attendees or send an email to¬†

We look forward to seeing you at Summit!
