“This year’s new Fellows reflect the time-served brilliance which our Association, and our profession as a whole, is proud to harbor. These five leaders have each distinguished themselves in our community, within business, and within society at large, and each has made a unique, lasting contribution to IABC, IABC Chair Russell Grossman, ABC, said. Honoring these practitioners as IABC Fellows signifies our deep deference and recognition for their sagacity, experience and reach and their overall contribution to the communications profession globally.
IABC Fellow nominees are considered based on: Outstanding contributions to the organizational communication field and profession; their body of work and career achievement; authorship, speaking and lecturing; and the impact theyve had on IABC, whether global or specific to a region.
