Announcing: A chapter board that will give you FOMO!

Back to Blogs By Adam Brayford, SCMP Posted: May 24, 2019

“Hire people who are better than you are, then leave them to get on with it. Look for people who will aim for the remarkable, who will not settle for the routine.”
-David Ogilvy

Communicator Sarah Temple introduced me to that quote in her 2014 talk to IABC/BC on lessons from her multinational career. And let me tell you– does it ever describe how I feel about the experienced, creative and, not to mention, fun team we’ve brought together to lead the world’s third largest IABC chapter into its 40th anniversary!

Just scroll down to see for yourself– this year’s board of directors slate has it all:

  • 220 years of professional experience
  • More than a century of IABC membership
  • 18 IABC awards
  • 9 leaders of teams
  • 9 new faces to the board
  • 4 GCCC certifications and IABC accreditations
  • 100% fun!

So without further ado, allow me to introduce to you IABC/BC’s proposed slate of directors for 2019/20.

Has the FOMO started yet? Don’t worry– you can get to know them better at the 2019 IABC/BC AGM where you can vote on the slate. And don’t forget to celebrate with them at the Wave Awards, right afterward!
