The benefits of IABC membership go far beyond networking with other San Diego communications professionals or attending professional development events. March is Member Month and it’s a great time to revisit the benefits of membership.

IABC members have access to a broad array of resources, podcasts, webinars, case studies, and free tools. Here are a few examples of some of the valuable content only available to IABC members:


Upcoming Events
We have some great events coming up, including our complimentary Internal Communicators Special Interest Group Discussion on Crisis Communication on March 29 (open to members only), a special lunch-and-learn event with veteran editor, writer and media critic Kevin Brasson: Communicating In a “Post-Truth” World on April 4, and the Third Annual San Diego Diversity Mixer on April 20 with the local chapters of IABC, the Public Relations Society of America, and the American Marketing Association.
