Posted in West of Scotland Area Group
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.

Posted in London Area Group
The next meeting of the ISTC London Group will be on Thursday 30th October 2014 at 6:30pm.
We’ll be meeting with David Farbey, the outgoing chair of the TCUK conference to talk about the themes and trends that emerged from the TCUK 2014 conference in Brighton in September this year. We talked about social media, responsive design, trust … and Boris bikes!
We’re meeting at a new venue for our group – The London Canal Museum, which is 5 minutes walk from King’s Cross rail and underground station. Free tea and coffee will be available (and we’ll probably all head out for a drink afterwards!) There is no charge for this meeting but space is limited, so please book early via Eventbrite.
