Event announcement

tekom Bulgaria founding event

The beginning of 2015 is the best timing for our well-thought-out and carefully planned Next Step in the development of a local community of technical communicators. We are very excited to announce that the founding event of the country organization tekom Bulgaria will take place on February 5th, 2015 in Sofia.

This is the day when existing members of tekom Europe will meet to lay the groundwork of an entity that will work hard to support a growing local community of technical communicators, information developers, information architects, translators and localization specialists. We believe this is a stepping stone that will bring more professional development opportunities to technical communicators in Bulgaria.

Special guests for this event will be Dr. Michael Fritz - Managing Director of tekom Europe and Ms. Anke Mecklenbrauck - University Relations and Country Organizations. They will fly over to Sofia to both witness and support our first step in this new endeavor.

What else will be happening at the founding event?

The newly elected Initiative Committee will present the goals and share the plan for the first year of existence of tekom Bulgaria. Both members and non-members will be able to engage in discussions, suggest ideas and commit to help the new organization succeed in delivering the events, trainings and networking opportunities that we all need in order to grow our careers in technical communication. Michael Fritz and Anke Mecklenbrauck will make a short overview of tekom Europe, the larger entity that stands behind the country organizations across Europe. This will be a great opportunity for all interested representatives to ask questions, discuss membership and benefits.
