Turning Words into Actions – September 2021

Thank you to everyone who completed our member survey and shared your feedback on what you’d like to see from IABC San Diego in the year ahead.

As communicators, we know that words are important. Transparency and accountability breed authenticity and give our words meaning. Meaningful words supported by action build trust.

Here’s what we heard from you:

More networking
Bringing people together is what we’re all about and members overwhelmingly agree that opportunities to create personal connections in small, informal settings is of the utmost importance.  

More ways to connect
While health and safety remain our top priority, members expressed interest in a hybrid approach of both virtual and in-person events and emphasized the importance of in-person networking.

More variety
From time of day, to event location, to development topics – let’s mix it up! Alternating event schedules will increase accessibility to our programming and provide opportunities to meet new people.

We’re a diverse group. From students to VPs, our member base spans not only generations but also industries, specialties, and expertise. That said, we can learn a lot from one another which makes networking all the more valuable!

Thank you again for taking the time to share your feedback and stay tuned as we turn your words into action and develop programming suited to your preferences.
