About the Alumni Chapter
The Alumni Chapter is a work in progress. That means that you can help define the purpose of the chapter and how it serves its members. Here's our working Mission Statement:
The Technical and Professional Writing Alumni Chapter of the SF State Alumni Association is open to both students and alumni. The organization aims to provide and maintain a mutually beneficial link between the TPW program and the world of the professional technical writer. Benefits are designed to enhance the student’s academic experience and transition into employment and to help keep the alum in touch with the TPW community and emerging technologies.
