Entry: It's official - STC India Chapter wins Chapter of Distinction award May 12, 2004

Hi,  Here is the message from Susan, STC India president.  Time to pop up the champagne !

Dear STC India Chapter members,

Makarand Pandit (who is currently in the US attending the STC conference) called Peter Yorke a short while ago to confirm that our chapter won the Chapter of Distinction award. The Chapter of Distinction award is the highest chapter achievement award in STC, and something that you have all made possible.

This award is a tribute to the efforts made by different STC members and chapter officers since the inception of the India Chapter. Several technical communicators in the country who are not STC India Chapter members but have supported our society's activities have also contributed to this award. Michele Berkes our outgoing Director-Sponsor provided significant direction for our award application.

The Chapter of Distinction award was presented at the Honors Banquet on Tuesday May 11, 2004. It was wonderful to hear that both Prashant Natarajan and Makarand Pandit attended the Honors Banquet and could accept this award on behalf of our chapter.

For the many who are wondering about how we will celebrate the award, we will do so at our chapter's annual conference in Chennai in December 2004. This is the only time that the geographically dispersed members of our chapter get a chance to meet.

Best regards,

Susan Alexander

STC India Chapter

Great! Congratulations to chapter and officers.

Silicon Valley Chapter received Excellence for the third consecutive year, but I'm not aware of us EVER achieving Excellence.
