Upcoming Meetings

Wednesday, Dec 30 – To Be More Efficient and Consistent, Build a Better Checklist

Joint TE SIG - SBSTC - LASTC logos

A joint STC Technical Editing SIG, STC Santa Barbara, and STC Los Angeles event

The Presentation

Anyone writing, editing, or managing any type of communication for a living is feeling the crunch. There is less time to create and edit; more types and formats of content; more apps, software, and systems to learn. And we expect quality, accuracy, and consistency from ourselves because we take pride in our work. In this webinar, we’ll discuss how to address a multitude of modern dilemmas with a relatively old-school hack: a checklist.

Come to this webinar to learn how using a comprehensive checklist created and updated for a specific communication task can help you differentiate workflows, systems, and activities; spell out style and formatting details, track your progress, document metrics, and give you a sense of completion and peace of mind.
