David, you have made a good point about the "diversity" (of backgrounds
and experiences) issue, but in MHO, it's a straw man, in that I don't
believe we'll EVER get the consensus that you claim is necessary (and
yes, it's prob NOT the in the best interests of our profession for STC
to be the sole arbiter!).

I acknowledge that, if we apply some standard education or experiential
requirement, yes, some "dinos" may be left in the cold...but again, I
believe that if you (as a technical communicator) have not exercised
your opportunities to remain current (read, get a TC or related degree,
etc.) or otherwise continued to grow professionally, then you're NOT as
capable (or marketable) as a GenX-er who has (BTW, I'm approaching 50,
went back to school at 30, and now have 3 degrees in comm).
