The Council for Programs in Scientific and Technical Communication is one of my home professional organizations. It is the organization to promote programs and research into programs in technical and professional communication. We may not look so similar when it comes to our research, but we all teach in programs, and many of those programs in TPC look remarkably the same.
Since we do all teach in programs, it’s important to meet regularly with others to discuss and to learn and to build a community. Within CPTSC, I have served as
- Past President, 2016-
- President, 2014-2016
- Vice-President, 2012-2014
- Local arrangements chair for 2013
- Committee membership
- Program Assessment and Review Committee, member, 2011-current
- Grants Committee, member, 2010-2013, 2016-
During my term on the executive committee, we have experienced our largest memberships and our most successful conferences. The conference in 2013 remains the biggest conference we ever hosted. We have also seen our finances stabilize and a rejuvenation of a number of our committees. It’s an exciting time to be part of CPTSC.
