Not only did we talk about the professional benefits of our IABC membership, but we discussed professional challenges, exchanged job opportunities, shared resources, found alliances and laughed a lot. I think it is fair to say that in addition to exchanging tips on local dry cleaners, dentists and promo item vendors, we made some new friends.
These relationships are rarely made in large settings, thus making networking opportunities with small groups invaluable. I hope the opportunity to connect with you in a small group setting presents itself in the upcoming year. I welcome your ideas on ways to connect with you to make your IABC experience more valuable. Please connect with me any time.
