Make the Most of Your IABC Experience – Volunteer!

Let’s face it. There’s no shortage of worthy volunteer causes out there. And there are only so many hours in the day. So how can you possibly find time to volunteer for IABC, right? 

Good News – The answer is easier than you think.

First, your career is obviously important to you! Why not make the most of the IABC experience? Simply plan on attending one of our IABC/Iowa professional development events or social and, while you’re at it, volunteer to help with some basic meeting duties – greeting and escorting attendees, for example. Call it professional development with a dash of networking. 

Second, volunteering with IABC is so easy! Not only can you volunteer to assist at a professional development event, but you can also get even more involved by becoming involved on our board. We will be looking to fill board positions in the next few months. What a perfect opportunity to showcase your talent and skills!

  • Contribute to an event planning committee (Members only)
  • Introduce a speaker
