October is IABC Member Month!

Back to Blogs Posted: October 4, 2017

This October, we’re celebrating IABC/BC members.

Whether you’ve been a part of IABC/BC for years, are new to communications, or looking to re-join after some time away from our chapter, Member Month is the perfect time to join IABC/BC and become a part of the chapter.

IABC International’s theme for this Member Month is Rocktober, which makes sense because being an IABC member rocks!

IABC Member Month Savings and Prizes

Everyone loves savings and IABC makes it easy to save a little bit of money on your membership this month.

New and renewing members will save 10% on International dues during the month of October. Plus, you’ll be entered in a weekly draw to win one of five $100 Ticketmaster gift cards.

If you refer fellow communicators to IABC/BC, you can win even more prizes for helping to grow the chapter:

• Refer five or more new members and get one free IABC Academy course registration
• Get one entry per referral into a draw to win one of 10 Amazon Echo devices—there’s two winners drawn each week!

The IABC/BC Membership Advantage

Becoming a part of IABC/BC opens up a whole new world of learning, connecting,  and volunteering. Our members come from all kinds of backgrounds, work in dozens of industries, and have a range of experiences on their resumes.

As an IABC/BC member, you’ll get access to:

• Exclusive events and networking opportunities with communicators across BC
• Volunteer opportunities to develop your skills within a supportive environment while helping the chapter and the communications profession.
• Professional development resources from IABC International and IABC/BC
