If you have already registered for the conference and renewed your membership, thank you so much! We’ll see you soon!
Please be aware of these upcoming events from one of our partner organizations, Women in Technical Communication. Women in TC provides a space for women to address issues that affect their lives and builds mentoring programs/infrastructures to respond to these varied needs. Women in TC is a valuable resource for pedagogy, research, and mentoring—and one of the hottest tickets at ATTW in Houston. Participate in upcoming events and reserve your seat at the luncheon now!
