President’s Letter – May 2017
When I ask other IABC members what they love the most about our organization, I hear a common reply: IABC members are genuine and friendly. People always seem to have a great time connecting at our events. Maybe it is because at the end of the day we all deal with similar issues in communication, regardless of our specialty or industry. It could also be that we enjoy the camaraderie of IABC because many times the work of a communicator and writing can be a solitary task, even when you are part of a team.
