The Institute of Scientific and Technical Communicators is the largest UK body representing information development professionals. Its members create or manage information that has an impact on people. This includes creating user guides, manuals, installation instructions, operating and safety procedures, business processes, training materials and software user assistance.
We encourage professional development, training courses in technical communication, standards, research resources and networking opportunities for our members and industry affiliates. The ISTC also promotes the value of technical communication and the profession.

Our latest area group meeting took place on Tuesday 28th October at Waxy O’Connors. A new group member joined us, and we discussed topics such as which kinds of organisations employ technical communicators, which tools are important to new technical writers, career progression, etc.
We also have news about the group’s management: Charles Addison, one of our group regulars, will be taking over the area group organiser role from Katja McLaughlin.
