First, it’s International Membership Month! If you’ve been thinking about joining or re-joining IABC, October is a great time to do it. For the remainder of the month, IABC will waive your $40 application fee. Take advantage of membership discounts to professional development events, exclusive member networking opportunities, educational resources, and more.
We have another free member event coming on November 6 – our Internal Communicators Special Interest Group meeting. Grab a coffee and enjoy a chat with fellow internal communicators to discuss best practices, common challenges, and shared experiences. Non-members are welcome to attend too for $5.
On November 19, we have another professional development event, sponsored by San Diego County Credit Union. Mark Kretschmar, IABC/Minnesota’s President Elect, will speak about how to have effective conversations that create action. Join us for an interesting session, networking, and lunch at UCSD Extension.
And finally, I ask that you help me welcome two new members to our board: Kevin Dinino and Paul Brencick. We’re thrilled to have two more experienced communicators to help serve our members. If you’re interested in volunteer opportunities with IABC/San Diego, please let me know! We have opportunities for both members and non-members.
President, IABC/San Diego
