Some Highlights from this Last STC Year

The 2012-2013 STC year was full of activity. There was lots to see and do. Here are just a few highlights:

  • A variety of topics and formats for our education evenings (for example, webinars, presentations, and panels).
  • Social events at McCabes like our Awards night and our games night.
  • Increased social media presence (106 members of our LinkedIn group, STC Southwestern Ontario Chapter; 120 followers @stc_soc on Twitter; over 100 members of STC Soutwestern Ontario Google Group, use of EventBrite for promoting and registering for our events, presence on Facebook)
  • Our first chocolate tasting event. There was so much chocolate that most people had to take some home.
  • Three exceptional winners of the Heidi Thiessen Memorial Award in a year when we changed the requirements from other years. The number of entries, once again, increased this year.
  • A Distinguished Chapter Service Award for Fei Min Lorente and The Summit Award for Kathryn Bender.
  • An AGM that included our Progress to Success Career Event with five presenters.
