Local STC Members Elevated to the Rank of Fellow

Each year, the Society for Technical Communication (STC) bestows honorary ranks--Fellow, Associate Fellow, and Honorary Fellow--to members who have been recognized as leaders in the field of technical communication. We have just learned that longtime STC members Russell Friend and Thomas Reed have been named STC Fellows by the Society's Board of Directors.
The rank of fellow is conferred upon associate fellows who have attained such eminence in the field of technical communication that the board, by a two-thirds vote of all members, deems them worthy of being singled out as one of the select few who have distinguished the Society and the profession. Associate fellows may not apply directly to the Board for the rank of fellow. Associate fellows may submit their applications to the Fellows Nominating Committee. The committee evaluates all applications and nominates candidates to the Board.
Congratulations, Russ and Tom! Our community appreciates the good work you do here in Chicago! A complete list of 2010 Fellows and Associate Fellows can been found here.
