About Us

Setting a standard of excellence since 1970, the International Association of Business Communicators (IABC) is a vibrant global membership association with thousands of members from around the world, representing many of the Global Fortune 500 companies.

IABC serves professionals in the field of business communication, bringing together the profession’s collective disciplines. We deliver on the Global Standard in communication through our educational offerings, certification, awards program, resource library, online magazine and annual World Conference.


We support our community of business communication professionals with innovative thinking, shared best practices, in-depth learning and career guidance.


The square mileage that the Great Plains Chapter of IABC covers is more than most, and yet the board and its members goes the distance when it comes to networking, professional development and volunteerism. 

Headquartered in Bismarck, North Dakota the Great Plains chapter of IABC covers North Dakota, South Dakota and Montana.
