Go Team IABC

You know the saying; we are only as good as the company we keep. That is so true. October is membership month for IABC. It’s typically a month that we reach out to those fellow communicators who we know would be a good addition to organization and who would benefit from all we have to offer. Yeah, I know, October is nearly over, but that doesn’t mean we still can’t take an active role in recruiting new members.

We want and need to grow our chapter in order to make it stronger. It’s better for all of us. It’s not just up to the membership VPs on the board, it every member’s responsibility to help promote our organization and sustain our chapter’s viability.

I challenge everyone to invite and bring prospective members to the professional development meetings. We have a lot to offer, right? Our monthly meetings are not only a great resource for ongoing education, but also provide an environment for professional collaboration, mentorship and comradery. 

Do you know a recent grad; someone looking for a new job; someone new to the community and the profession? Invite them and bring them. I dare you! Let’s make IABC Topeka great again.
