Volunteering at IABC
Here are some testimonials from IABC members that are the best articulations of the value and benefit of participation in IABC.
"IABC has enriched my life in many career altering ways. My first experience came with attendance at Leadership Institute shortly after joining. The tools available and willingness to openly share best practices amazed me as I was like a fresh sponge absorbing all that was for the offering. I have learned so much about leadership from IABC and have met people from all voer the world who have influenced my career."
Audraine Jackson, President, Jackson Communications, Atlanta
"Having access to the world's best business communication talent through volunteering at IABC has not only increased my own knowledge but also launched my business into new markets. It has, more importantly, provided me with lifelong friendships and a network of virtual business partners across the globe."
Adrian Cropley, ABC, Director, Cropley Communication, Melbourne, Australia, and Chair of IABC International
