Please join the NEO STC for the Thursday, April 10 program, “Component Content Management System,” by Suzanne Mescan of Vasont Systems.

If you’re a technical writer who has no reason to go beyond MS Word, get ready to explore strange, new technologies, seek out new programs and software, and boldly go where no one like you has been before. Mescan will introduce technologies emerging as a critical tool for technical communicators: a component content management system (CCMS). You will learn the basics of CCMS operation, and how it benefits you and your organization. Also, you’ll learn how a CCMS can expand a technical writer’s career path, or final frontier.
