On January 22, 2018, the STC Board of Directors approved merging the Austin chapter of STC into the Houston Chapter of STC. The STC Houston members who voted were overwhelmingly in favor of the merger. STC Austin has been well served by Chris Ward, but dwindling members response and lack of administrative council members has made continuing the STC Austin chapter too difficult to continue.

Chris Ward, President of the Austin Chapter, and Erika Frensley, President of the Houston Chapter have been discussing the best way to merge the two chapters. STC Houston has been experimenting with livestreaming and recording of the program meetings, and has been discussing holding webinars. Chris’s experience with both will prove invaluable as STC Houston expands to include Austin members.

STC Houston welcomes the members in Austin, and will do our best to serve them as well.
