“When I joined IABC Manitoba in 2013, I discovered an instant network of people to share ideas and experiences with that went beyond my expectations. IABC is an investment in a professional support system that keeps you up-to-date on the latest trends in the industry and best practices in today’s fast-paced working environment. More importantly, it’s an opportunity to do great things with the communications and business professionals who I may not have otherwise had the chance to meet.”

“I joined IABC Manitoba because I wanted to connect with some of the leading communicators around the world. Soon after becoming a member, I decided to join the IABC Manitoba board to gain experience in an area that my day-to-day job doesn’t provide me. Overall, my involvement with IABC has been great and has allowed me to make connections, build my skills and grow personally and professionally. As a result of my involvement on the board, I’ve gained the confidence I needed to take on new projects in my day-to-day work.”

“Being an IABC Manitoba member has given me the opportunity to volunteer and therefore give back to the profession I love. I’ve met many amazing public relations professionals, at different phases of their career, from newly-minted to seasoned professionals. Those contacts have proven to be invaluable. Thank you IABC Manitoba!”

“I joined IABC in 2013 because I was so impressed by the global presence of the association and I’ve never looked back! I’ve gained so much from my experience with IABC including countless connections, improved communication skills and many professional development opportunities. In just three years I’ve travelled to conferences in Toronto, San Francisco and Orlando. I continue to be impressed by the quality and character of IABC members around the world who are now just one LinkedIn message away.”
