The table may be split across home offices right now, but there are seats to fill. If you’re looking to make an impact on your career  and profession beyond your workplace, now’s the time to take a seat at the IABC Manitoba table.

We have big roles and small ones. Every available role contributes to bringing Manitoba communicators together to network and learn from one another and industry experts.
