I must first start by showing some love to our amazing IABC/San Diego chapter. A big thank you to those of you who have made it out to one of our events so far this year! It’s been great to see so many new faces and reconnect with some familiar ones. Your membership and participation is the main reason why IABC/San Diego is the region’s premier communication resource.

How about showing yourself a little bit of extra love this month? Join us for some guilt-free goodness this Wednesday, February 17, for our LinkedIn Workshop Lunch. Learn from award-winning social media strategist Raleigh Gerber about how to get the most out of this professional-minded platform by increasing your online visibility, authority and reputation. It’s happening from 11:30 a.m. until 1:15 p.m. at AMN Healthcare. Register today!

How about showing someone else a little extra love this month? If you know a fellow IABC member in the Greater San Diego Area who is a leader in the communication profession or a young professional who is already doing amazing work, nominate them for the Communicator of the Year (COTY) or Junior COTY award. The COTY and Junior COTY awards recognize two greater San Diego area-based leaders each year who demonstrate strategic excellence in communication. You can even nominate yourself! The deadline for nominations is Thursday, March 10, 2016. Nominate today!

Are you an independent communicator who loves to get together with fellow communicators to talk all things communication? Then you don’t want to miss the Independent Communicator’s Interest Group Meeting on the morning of February 25 at the Corner Bakery Café in Mission Valley. This is the perfect opportunity to bounce ideas off fellow communicators, learn how others are marketing their business and connect with other independent communicators and IABC members. Register today!

Lastly, if you love a good mixer—save the date! IABC/San Diego, Public Relations Society of America and San Diego American Marketing Association are hosting the 2nd Annual Diversity Mixer on March 10. Learn more.

Again, thank you for your membership – I look forward to seeing you at upcoming events!

President, IABC/San Diego
