About STC New England

The New England chapter is one of the largest chapters in the Society for Technical Communication (STC) with more than 250 members. The New England chapter serves technical communications professionals in Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont.

The chapter sponsors monthly programs, informal social events, an annual technical publications competition, and a regional professional conference.

STC New England was formed in 2011 when the Boston Chapter and the Northern New England Chapter merged to form the New England chapter. The Boston Chapter, incorporated in 1953, and the Association of Technical Writers and Editors in New York City were founding chapters of the STC.

Mentoring Program

Are you looking to achieve your technical communication goals more quickly? Do you want to learn more about a specific area of the profession? The New England Chapter wants to help! We are sponsoring a mentoring program for area professionals.
