We know many communicators lack the internal support or buy-in they need to grow in their positions, which makes them feel overwhelmed and perhaps frustrated.

 

Communicators are a mission-critical part of every organization and deserve to have access to the resources, network, and training that will help them grow and improve in their position. 

 

Our group of local, seasoned communicators are backed by a 50-year-old international association of professionals from nearly every industry in the world.

We get it.

TRACIE BETTENHAUSEN
MEMBER SINCE 2007

IABC is my lifeline to communication professionals across industries and across the world. I tell new members, ‘whatever you put into IABC you will get back tenfold.’ Volunteer and you will meet lifelong friends and mentors. I have forged closer connections with colleagues here at home through IABC, but also have friends I can call when I need advice, a new perspective, or knowledge outside of my own experience.

MIKE MABIN
MEMBER

Having been a member for over 40 years, I’m a lifetime advocate for IABC. I attribute my foundational abilities as a professional communicator to IABC. Although I completed college degrees in both communications and management, I learned how to put the theories into practice by becoming an accredited communicator and participating as a volunteer IABC board member. Throughout my career, I’ve been a member of dozens of professional organizations.  IABC has outperformed and outlasted them all.

I joined the Great Plains chapter of IABC in 1992. I’ve been a member ever since, even during retirement. IABC, locally and internationally, provides support through professional development, networking, and educational resources.
