I strongly believe in the huge potential for development of our profession in Bulgaria. My mission as an IC member is to promote technical writing and help establish our community as a known brand of technical communication in the country. To do so, I am dedicated to the ROADSHOW activities that will help us reach out to:
- Universities, academic communities, and teachers who can help us establish a dedicated specialty in Bulgaria.
- Local IT communities that will help us attract a greater number of students and young people.
- Businesses that will help us draw further attention on the importance of what we do.
