Why you should participate in the Gift of Communication

14 Nov 2013, by Kylie Munoz in Be Heard Blog, IABC/SD News

Since joining the IABC/San Diego board in 2012, I’ve always looked at the position as “What can I do for IABC?” rather than “What can IABC do for me?” It’s the networking and mentoring I’ve valued the most – finding ways I can help others.

TomyGysi_100x120While in New York this June at World Conference, I had the privilege of participating in the Gift of Communication event. Communicators just like us were paired with non-profit organizations in the area needing communications help. During the event, communicators chatted with the non-profit leaders about their communications challenges as well as general issues facing their organizations. We helped them develop a strategy to help these great organizations overcome some of the hurdles keeping them from advancement. On top of supporting the organization, it was great to learn from these nonprofit leaders – people who have such dedication and passion for the causes they believe in. Truly inspiring!

Your IABC/San Diego chapter is bringing the gift of communication to you – we are holding an event with San Diego organizations in which you will have the opportunity to give back and help worthy organizations right here in your San Diego community. Stay tuned for more information.
