President’s Letter – November 2016
The Value of Professional Networking

Anna Davison, IABC/San Diego PresidentA recent study estimated over 85% of all jobs are filled through networking.  Your network can be critical in helping you find that next role and growing your career or finding the right person for an open position on your team.

IABC is a great networking resource. You will find that our members are open, friendly, and willing to help. IABC members can help you make connections with professionals across the globe. Whether it is a referral for a job opening, sharing communication templates and tools, or helping make introductions to experts in specific fields, our members are known for being willing to go that extra mile for each other. For examples of the impact IABC membership can have, read what IABC members are saying!

Networking can seem daunting and at IABC we aim to make it easy for everyone!  Our November 16 Mixer at Rough Draft Brewery is a perfect opportunity to meet and build relationships in a relaxed environment.

The best part?  If you are an IABC member, the mixer is free!  How can you pass that up? Take advantage of this member benefit and strengthen your connections to other communications professionals in the San Diego area. IABC members, reserve your free ticket now!

Not an IABC Member yet?  Tickets for non-members are $20.  Come join us and see for yourself what IABC is all about and meet our members.  We will have special ambassadors at the mixer who will help make introductions, so networking at the event will be a breeze.

If you can’t make it this month, there are more opportunities to network in December! Join us on December 8, 2016, for the industry’s biggest holiday bash, Mingle Bells. Members can snag tickets for $50 before December 2.

I hope to see you at Rough Draft Brewery on November 16, and I look forward to helping you build connections that can advance your career.
