Here is what some of our volunteers have to say about their IABC Manitoba experience:

“IABC gives me the insights, connections and experience I need to enhance my career. I especially appreciate the people I have met and worked with to hone my communication leadership skills while having fun.”

~ Marjorie Huculak, an active volunteer and past president of IABC Manitoba who works in external relations with the Parks Canada Agency


“It was my advertising instructor, Kenton Larsen, who advised me about volunteering with IABC Manitoba, after COVID cancelled my hopes of finding a communications related summer job. I thought it sounded like a wonderful opportunity to learn and network.”

~ Riley Malinowski, a Public Relations & Communications Management student at Red River College.


“Volunteering with IABC equipped me with the necessary communication skills to do things I love while building connections globally.”

~ Mekala Wickramasinghe, coordinator of international recruitment and partnerships at MITT and former IABC Manitoba president.


“I never imagined the wealth of knowledge, honour, recognition, and life-long connections coming my way when I started. IABC gave me a platform to practice my existing skills and diversify them as a comms professional while keeping up with industry trends.”

~ Shruti Gupta who joined IABC five years ago as an international student, and continues to gain new skills volunteering as IABC Manitoba’s marketing and communications coordinator.
