Get the most out of your IABC membership my accessing these resources to provide information on a variety of topics and information. Don’t miss out!
Maybe our most exciting benefit of membership, we offer volunteer opportunities to serve on the IABC/Iowa board that will help you grow in leaps and bounds.
Hone your craft as you learn about elements of the communication world you might not see in your day job for years:
You’ll build relationships and share ideas with colleagues at other companies and stay in tune with the best practices that will make your work life easier, no matter your focus area.
Through IABC/Iowa, connect with fellow communication professionals, and advance your career.
Big or small, there are plenty of opportunities to give back and help IABC/Iowa.
Without volunteers, our nonprofit organization wouldn’t be able to provide the great professional development programming, networking opportunities and recognition that we do each year. How you can help:
Getting involved is by far the best way to connect with fellow communicators and advance your career. Expand your professional network. Learn some new skills you wouldn’t get exposed to in your day job. Build a stronger resume. In other words, make friends, try new things and benefit professionally in the process.
It’s fun and well worth your time. We promise.
