The Fellow designation is the highest honor IABC confers upon members. It denotes a body of achievement as a communicator or communication educator who has had a significant impact not only on the communicator’s organization and IABC, but on the communication profession. This impact can be universal in nature or specific to a country or region. One way to think about the Fellows designation is as a "professional career award," although the designation is by no means limited to communicators nearing the end of their careers. All members are encouraged to submit a nomination, as this award is open to ALL IABC members.
Fellow selection criteria includes:
- Contribution to and leadership in the organizational communication field and profession (25 percent)
- Career achievement (25 percent)
- Authorship, speaking and lecturing (25 percent)
- Contributions to IABC (25 percent)
