04 Oct 2013, by Kylie Munoz in Be Heard Blog, IABC/SD News

Last month I was surprised to find out that I had been named to San Diego Metro’s 40 under 40.

The list recognizes some of the brightest minds in our city, and I was humbled and proud to be among the impressive honorees.

While the award is reflective of accomplishments throughout my career, I credit my involvement with IABC as catalyzing my addition to this list.

Getting involved with the chapter has allowed me to step outside my daily job, and take advantage of opportunities to expand my skill set and develop my leadership abilities.

If there’s an area of business you want to learn more about whether it’s budgeting, event planning, marketing, leadership or community outreach, being on the board of an IABC chapter enables you to explore these areas in ways that your job might not allow.

It’s fun to be able to put on a different hat and challenge yourself with projects outside your daily scope, and it’s so rewarding to work with a great team of professionals with a common goal of making IABC/San Diego the best resource for its members.

With that in mind, we’re providing two great learning opportunities this month that will unmask new ideas and help you think beyond your everyday tasks.

First up, Celia Bloom, Director of Marketing Communications at McGregor & Associates, will be sharing her award-winning insights on how to make the most impact through your marketing campaigns as part of our Member Talks webinars.

Second, you’ll have the chance to learn from four San Diego luminaries at our Senior Communicator Panel Discussion. During this hour-long moderated discussion, our panelists will share their experiences and insights on some of the most relevant topics facing our industry. This evening event is not to be missed.

We’ll have more exciting programs and events in the coming months, be sure to connect with us through our social media channels to keep tabs on what’s new.

Until next time,

Kate Hardman, ABC
President, IABC/San Diego
