Congratulations to Martha Muzychka and Neil Griffiths on being inducted into the 2019 Class of Fellows!
The 2019 IABC Fellows
The IABC Fellow designation is the highest honor bestowed on an IABC member. Becoming a Fellow denotes a body of achievement by a communicator who has had a significant impact not only on their organization and IABC, but also on the communication profession at large.
Only 93 of the world’s top leaders have earned this superlative designation. It is considered by IABC to be a career achievement award for the industry. The Fellows committee made the selection from a competitive field of applicants and nominated two immensely talented Fellows.
