About STC Fellow

Fellow is one of the three honorary ranks in the Society. Fellow is an
honor bestowed by the Society upon Associate Fellows who have continued to make exemplary contributions to the arts and science of technical communication, and for sustained and significant service to STC. These contributions involve significant achievements that advance the profession and its recognition.

Each year, the STC Fellows Committee considers the qualifications, contributions, and achievements of Associate Fellows who submit their credentials to the committee for review, and then submits recommendations for Fellow to the STC Board of Directors. Upon a two-thirds majority vote of the board, the rank of Fellow is conferred upon a recommended Associate Fellow.

The Society takes enormous pride in recognizing these Fellows at the STC Summit following the vote of the board.

To be considered for Fellow, a candidate must have:

  • Inducted as an Associate Fellow at or prior to the 2021 STC Summit
  • Member of the Society in good standing for at least 13 years
  • Active in the Technical Communication profession for at least 18 years
