During the past few years, the Society for Technical Communication has been addressing international issues systematically. We have rejoined INTECOM, the umbrella organization of technical communication societies throughout the world. We have adopted a tiered dues structure to encourage
membership in developing countries and offered electronic memberships so that those outside the US can avoid a postal surcharge for publications. This fall, for the second time in STC’s history, the board of directors will meet outside North America. Because this issue of the journal
focuses on trends in education, I’d like to consider changes that established programs must make to prepare their students for the global future, as well as the need for programs in the developing world.
