IABC Fellow Designation

What is an IABC Fellow?

The IABC Fellow designation is the highest honor we bestow on our members. Becoming a Fellow denotes a body of achievement by a communicator who has had a significant impact not only on her or his organization and IABC, but also on the communication profession at large.
