LASTC, the Los Angeles Chapter of the Society for Technical Communication, provides local professionals and students with a forum for new techniques and technology, networking opportunities, classes, and seminars. The atmosphere is welcoming and members are generous with their time and expertise.

STC is an international organization dedicated to advancing the art and science of technical communication. Its members include technical writers and editors, content developers, technical illustrators, instructional designers, academics, information architects, usability professionals, visual designers, Web designers and developers, and translators—people whose work makes technical information available to those who need it.

Society membership provides opportunities for ongoing learning and professional networking. Through the efforts of a small full-time staff and a large network of volunteers, STC educates its members and industry about issues concerning technical communication.
