By Karen Bachmann, UUX Manager
The STC year is in full swing. October and November are especially busy with conference planning and community service recognition nominations. Webinars and other STC training opportunities also are available. UUX activities are underway as well.
An exciting development is that STC has a license for Genesys webinar software. This means that it is now easier for STC communities to provide online training opportunities to members. I plan for UUX to host a webinar this year. Let me know what topics you would like to learn more about. If you would like to volunteer to help organize the training, contact me as well. More companies are using webinars to reach potential and current customers, so participating in planning and hosting a UUX webinar provides a valuable opportunity to gain experience with this training technology.
Another upcoming event is the first ever UUX elections. A call for nominations will go out in November for a manager, assistant manager, and a treasurer. If the new STC bylaws are ratified, these are the required officers for every STC community, virtual or geographic. Of course, running for office is just one way to be involved in community elections. Volunteers to help contact nominees and count votes are needed.
Volunteers are needed to plan and host UUX events at the annual conference in Philadelphia, June 1-4, 2008. The conference continues to evolve as STC continues to improve its value to members. Providing a forum for communities, especially virtual communities that typically do not meet in person throughout the year, is part of that effort. Key activities at recent conferences have included a UUX welcome table at the opening reception, the business meeting, and networking at the SIG luncheons. If you are planning to attend the conference, volunteering to help with conference events is a great way to get involved and support the whole community.
Please contact me if you are interested in participating in any of these activities
