A Humorous Look at the 2008 Conference
Join us on June 10, 2008, to enjoy perspectives of this year’s conference from an experienced conference goer and a newbie. Tom Barnett has attended conferences every year for “quite a few” years during his tenure with STC. Karen Zorn has never attended one and is looking forward to the conference and reporting back to the membership her impressions and views. Both are attending this year’s Technical Communication Summit and will return with differing perspectives of the conference proceedings and associated activities. Following Tom and Karen’s presentation, there will be opportunity to discuss their perspectives and yours, should you also attend the conference, and we’ll host our annual Awards for the Chapter. Mark your calendar and plan on joining us for the June 10 STC-Phoenix chapter meeting at the Phoenix Airport Hilton.

September 2008 PAO Call for Judges
The Phoenix Chapter is again sponsoring the Southwest Regional PAO Competitions. We are now in the process of recruiting judges.
If you volunteered to judge for last year’s competition, I am hoping you are willing to judge again this year. If you didn’t, I hope you will offer to do so this year. The judging schedule is very similar to last year’s:
Sat., October 18: Judging Kickoff (entries distributed to judging teams)
Sat., Nov. 8: Consensus Judging (meet in teams to decide on awards)
Between these two dates you have three weeks to evaluate entries and complete the STC evaluation forms.
Please let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are available for judging this year and if so, please identify which category (Art, Publications, Online) you feel qualified to judge.
Also, please talk to your colleagues about judging for the competitions. The basic requirement is to have several years’ experience producing or managing the kinds of communication products you will be judging. Judges do not have to be STC members.
Judging information, Call for Entries and other competition information is posted on the Phoenix chapter website at http://www.stc-phoenix.com/2008-pao.
