President’s Letter – March 2019

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:


  • IABC offers free member-only webinars with all-star speakers presenting the latest trends and best practices in communication. Join the live sessions or listen to the session recordings at your convenience.
  • Ask questions or get valuable recommendations from other communications practitioners on IABC’s online Hub.

If you’re thinking about becoming a member or renewing your membership there’s no better time to join IABC than this month. You’ll get 10% off your annual dues, and you’ll be entered into a drawing to win a grand-prize VIP World Conference package (a more than $2,800 value).

If you’re already an IABC member, there are also incentives for referring a new or lapsed member who joins during March.

Upcoming Event

Open to IABC members (there’s still time to join!), our next Special Interest Group meet-up will be held the morning of Wednesday, March 13, in Mission Valley. Join us over coffee as we discuss what and who is inspiring us lately, which books or Ted Talks have changed the way we think about communication, and recommendations for apps or tools that transform the way we’re working. It should be an interesting discussion, and the event is free-of-cost to members.

March on! We hope to see you soon.

Robynn Rockstad-Rex
President, IABC/San Diego
