What our members are saying

In the last few years, I've gone all in with IABC. I now see why so many communication professionals I admire are so committed to this organization. IABC builds connections, it lets you tap into a community that will challenge the way you think and celebrate the work you do. Sometimes, it's as simple as providing validation that you actually do know what you're doing but if you don't, you can find someone or a resource that will steer you in the right direction. That lifeline is invaluable.

When I moved from the UK to New Zealand, a mentor recommended IABC to build my network. When I moved from NZ to Sydney, IABC was the community I went to for professional development. When I was approached at an IABC event about my current role, IABC is what has kept me relevant. When I wanted to showcase excellence, IABC Gold Quills were there for me. All in all, IABC has been at my side to support my career growth; it is this #createconnection and #unityincommunity that means so much to me.

IABC is the most valuable professional organization I've ever been a part of. IABC keeps me on top of my communications game through professional development opportunities at the state, regional and international level. Through IABC, I've joined a phenomenal network of communications peers with whom I can share best practices. It was through that network that I landed my current professional role, and I'm so thankful! It's the best job I've ever had.
