Hi Fellow Presidents!

Here is a free event you can add and push out to your chapter members. Free learning content!!! Please share what we're up to and invite them to our upcoming webinar series.

November 18th from 10am -to 12 pm PST - How to Use Word Like a Boss! Free Webinar!
If you register and attend, you will receive a copy of the recorded webinar.

Transform your basic Word skills into mastery.

In this event you will learn:

  *   Generate a table of contents based on built-in styles
  *   Create and modify styles to create a new template
  *   Move template containing new styles between documents
  *   Learn about built-in CTRL keys that you can use to supercharge your work.
  *   Add CTRL+ keys to styles to work faster and more powerfully.

If you have been using Word for years but can't auto-generate a table of contents or can't change the look of your document by making a change to one style (basically 1-click) then you should attend this class!

In addition, we'll be doing some work with the index and TOC and showing you why you should turn off paragraph markers when you generate these items, and much more. This will be a jam-packed session!

The class is free but you must register in order to attend and to receive the link to the webinar. Register here<https://www.eventbrite.com/e/saturday-series-session-3-using-word-like-a-boss-tickets-37778998000>. I

Trainers Note: I used to teach Advanced Word at a junior college for five years and I found that about 20% of the students who took that class were not of an advanced level. They confused the length of time they used Word with the level of user that they were. But if you use a tool repeatedly for 1 year or 20 but never advance in your understanding of the tool, you never become an advanced use, just an experienced beginner. That goes for any of the sessions above. If you have used SnagIt, for instance, for years but never advanced beyond basic screen capturing, then you should check out the class.

We have 100-seat webinar tool available for these Saturday Sessions and in fact, want to invite other chapters to offer commonly used tools to train on and we'll facilitate using our tool to help you put on a webinar that will help all of our chapters. See The Saturday Series<http://www.stc-psc.org/the-saturday-series/> for more information about the concept behind these courses.

Make sure to configure and test Zoom (conferencing tool) ahead of time: Download and test our Zoom tool to verify that it functions prior to the event. I suggest you perform the audio test if you plan to use VOIP prior to the meeting event or you will have audio problems and we will not be dealing with them during the event.

Seeking Others to Participate as Trainers on Other Subjects
We are doing a session on Learning Word in November and we're looking for people who'd like to do similar sessions on PPT, Excel, and other tools that are standard tools for new tech comm graduates or those returning after an absence. But anyone can come and pick up some forgotten learnings. What can you teach? Or who would be a good person to reach out to?
