Student Volunteers

Having student volunteers is a win-win for students and for STC. Student volunteers can attend the Summit, learn aspects of technical communication beyond their college classrooms, and build their professional networks. STC receives support during the Summit registration and sessions, which improves the experience for both speakers and attendees.
