Saturday, January 18: Annual Party and Touchstone Awards

Our annual party features a catered buffet dinner, great companionship with fellow communicators, and valuable door prizes. As in previous years, we will announce the  northern California Technical Communication Competition, Touchstone, winners and display the winning entries throughout the evening. These winners exhibit the best in technical communication.

This party is an annual favorite — casual, but festive. Come have fun while keeping up with the best work of your peers. To reserve online, scroll to the bottom of the page.

Program: Display Touchstone winning entries throughout the evening and recognize the technical communicators who submitted them. Recognize and honor competition judges and Berkeley chapter volunteers for their contributions to the chapter and the profession, introduce our 2020 chapter officers. Conduct our yearly raffle, which once again will feature valuable raffle items offered through the generosity and support from the leading vendors in our professional community.
