May 2013 President’s Letter – Why We Appreciate Our Members

10 May 2013, by Kylie Munoz in Be Heard Blog, IABC/SD News

Our board term comes to a close next month. As I reflect back on the past year as president of IABC/San Diego, one theme rings true – a deep appreciation for our members.Angie_Robert

Our members are the life of our organization, and that sentiment spans much further than your annual dues.

We are grateful for your membership for so many reasons:

  • Volunteer work
  • Industry expertise
  • Speaking engagements
  • Event attendance
  • Networking
  • Donations
  • Investment of time
  • Pushing our industry forward
  • Accreditation
  • Awards entry and judging
  • Sponsorship

Thank you for all you do for IABC, here in San Diego and on a national or international level. We want to thank you this month at our free-to-attend Member Appreciation Mixer on May 15, sponsored by Intesa Communications and KCDPR. We will be treating you to drinks, appetizers and networking on the beautiful patio of Truluck’s in UTC. Space is limited, so be sure to sign up now.

If you are a new member, we want you to know that we appreciate you from day one. Please join us at our New Member Coffee on June 7 at Specialty’s in UTC to meet other members and learn about the variety of opportunities IABC/San Diego can offer you. IABC/San Diego will provide coffee for new members, but all members are welcome to attend.

As always, I welcome your feedback. Please feel free to reach out to me at any time with your ideas, suggestions or questions. Again, thank you for your membership and all you do for IABC/San Diego.
