Join us for an exciting professional development opportunity in April!

Please see the message below from our professional development seminar team. They have put together a different and exciting seminar for us this year, and we are very excited to come together for the day to learn more about communications and honor our Communicator of the Year. 

Communications: It’s a Balancing Act

Tickets are now available for IABC/Topeka’s half-day professional development seminar.

Striking the right balance in communications is sometimes easier said than done. From building marketing and brand strategies, crafting messaging that resonates with audiences and keeping personal lives in check, communicators have a lot on their plates.

Join IABC/Topeka for a refreshing workshop on finding your balance — from the office and beyond. In this half-day session, you’ll walk away with:  

  • Proven techniques for keeping your head on straight while wearing many hats
  • Expert tips and tools to help you master your marketing and branding efforts
  • Real world strategies for communicating across the generations

Our featured topics and speakers include:
