I recently interviewed Alan Houser, candidate for STC vice president, in a podcast about his perspectives and plans for the STC. Both Alan and Vici Koster-Lenhardt are running for this position. I asked each of them the following five questions:

  • What's one of the greatest challenge STC members face right now. Any solutions?
  • What would you like to see differently in the STC?
  • Local chapters struggle to make their events relevant to members. How would you help fix this problem?
  • How can you help you resolve the rift between academics and practitioners?
  • Given the variety of job titles/specializations in the STC, how can you keep the magazines, conferences, webinars, etc. relevant?

For more information on Alan, see his bio here and his blog post on the STC Notebook. You can also listen to the Scriptorium webinar forum with the two candidates.

The election runs from March 9 to March 30. You can ask the candidate questions here.
