InterChange is STC New England’s annual technical communication conference. Over a two-day period, the conference features technical communicators from all over New England and beyond. Attendees use the conference to network, present new ideas, and hold workshops that build skills.
Inter”Changes”: A few years ago we shifted the date of the InterChange conference from the spring to the fall. We’ve had several years of results to look at, and we’re thinking of making further changes to ensure the conference’s viability. We hope to have the next InterChange in the spring of 2020. We’re still recruiting the conference committee, most notably a conference manager. If you want to help—and have a say in how to make InterChange even better!—now is the time. If you want to advance your career by demonstrating your ability to manage a project, this can be a significant opportunity for you. Please contact us.
InterChange 2018 was held on Friday, October, 26, 2018, and Saturday, October 27, 2018, at the UMass Lowell Inn and Conference Center in Lowell, Massachusetts.
The 2018 theme was Engineering Experiences. Technical communicators have always crafted stories and experiences for users using their words and technical expertise. As technology evolves, the need to craft effective and engaging experiences is more important than ever.
We always need sponsors for InterChange. Sponsorship creates a presence for your company at the conference, in the InterChange program, and on our website and other chapter materials. Such a presence can include representatives and speakers at the conference, as well as co-marketing your company and products to technical communicators in the New England region.
We need several volunteers to help make the event a success. If you are interested in this or any other area, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org and express what areas you’d be interested in.
