IABC is looking for outstanding presenters to join our stellar slate of speakers 14–17 June at the 2020 IABC World Conference in Chicago, and the deadline to apply is quickly approaching. All submissions must be in by 11:59 p.m. PDT on Thursday, 19 September.

As communication professionals, we are driven to create understanding. We analyze and plan. We organize, offer insight and inspire. We innovate and transform. We keep things human. We deliver. But in an age of rapid change, how do we use our abilities to help organizations shift and get prepared for the future?

That’s the question we will help answer for more than 1,000 communication professionals from around the globe at the event in June, as we explore issues around the conference theme, “Shift: #AreYouReady.”

If you’re a subject matter expert on a topic that’s current and relevant to communication professionals, which ties into this theme and can help communicators gain the knowledge, tools and ideas they need to be prepared for what’s ahead, we want to hear from you!

The submission deadline for breakout proposals is 11:59 p.m. PDT 19 September 2019. We look forward to getting your submission and hope to see you in Chicago. If this doesn’t sound like an opportunity for you, we hope you’ll consider passing it along to a colleague who you feel would be a great fit.
