IABC/Iowa connects communication professionals and helps them advance their careers.
We’re a diverse, broad-based group and not just because we’re part of a larger international organization. It’s because our members represent all walks of life in the communication world.
Who we are
We’re not only focused on PR or marketing, though we have a lot of folks from both those areas.
We have communicators from:
- Companies large and small
- For-profit and nonprofit
- Corporate communications
- Internal and external
- Social media
- Community relations
- Government relations
- Investor relations
- Photography, video and graphic design
Really, you name it.
And these days, in many places, you’re doing all of those things, so to us, communicators are communicators, and there’s a ton we can learn from each other.
Broad appeal, exposure to the best and brightest
We plan our programming, including our prestigious annual awards, to appeal to as many types of communicators as possible. You’ll have a chance to network with the area’s best and brightest, whether you’re looking to fill a position, meet potential clients or find your next job.
Through our regional and international organizations, membership also provides you access to the brightest minds in the industry worldwide.
Volunteer opportunities to hone your craft
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:
- Plan professional development events
- Manage a budget
- Foster a vibrant community of communicators
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.
