West of Scotland area group meeting 25 March 2014: meeting report

The West of Scotland area group gathered on Tuesday 25th March for a networking meeting at the Waxy O’Connor’s pub in Glasgow city centre. We were pleased to welcome a couple of new people to the group and the meeting had a total of seven attendees, making it a relatively busy meeting. One of the main topics of conversation was how to get into technical communication if you have no previous technical writing experience. We also discussed topics such as whether formal technical communication qualificiations are important and how technical communicators fit into organisational structures. Free copies of the latest issue of the Communicator were handed out too, which proved popular.
