Specific Benefits, Intangible Rewards
The value of IABC membership – all its programs, relationships, insights and services – can be summed up succinctly: Specific benefits, intangible rewards.
Members enjoy exclusive benefits, including:
- Connections at the local and global level through chapter events; on-line conversations in The Hub; and the resources of the Global Alliance for Public Relations and Communication Management;
- Thought-leadership through Catalyst, a weekly publication from members on innovation, business acumen and trends; and specially-curated educational offerings;
- Leadership opportunities within a chapter, at the global level, in evaluating Gold Quill Award entries for excellence in communications, and mentoring others;
- Career development resources to progress through IABC's Career Roadmap for communication professionals and evaluate new opportunities through the Job Centre.
And only members receive significantly reduced rates for IABC’s signature offerings, including the World Conference, the Gold Quill Awards, and its global certification initiative.
In addition to specific benefits, IABC members receive intangible rewards from a community of like-minded communication professionals: the chance to make friends; to diversify your perspective and challenge the status quo; to collaborate on a local project or a global initiative; to share ideas and advance the profession.
This combination of detailed benefits and unquantifiable rewards has been at the foundation of IABC for over 50 years, serving tens of thousands of current and former members. We hope you will take part in creating IABC’s future!
