I would not know the first thing about the communication profession were it not for IABC. I joined right after landing my first communications job, and IABC has been with me all the way through my career, now twenty years and counting. Michael Deas, ABC
Since I joined right after landing my first job, IABC has been there for me as I’ve grown in this profession. It not only helped me stay current with emerging trends in my industry, but I also developed personal and professional friendships that will last a lifetime. I’m so grateful for all that IABC has meant to me over the last twenty years. Tammie Epps
