Gift of Communication

Giving back to the community that has given us so much is an important theme among IABC/BC members. Our Gift of Communication program gives you an opportunity to do just that.

The program, which began several years ago, brings together IABC/BC members who volunteer in teams to help solve communication issues for one or more local non-profit agencies. This win-win opportunity allows members to make a difference in the local community, while showcasing the communications profession and its flagship association.

The local chapter program has supported charities such as Ronald McDonald House BC & YukonSpecial Olympics British Columbia and BC & Alberta Guide Dogs.

Gift of Communication Program

This year, we’re once again pairing up senior communicators with those at the mid-level to work together on a well-defined communications project for a selected non-profit organization. A winning opportunity for all, the Gift of Communication/Mentorship program is a great way for mentees to learn from a seasoned communication professional by completing a structured task together.

The program will kick off with a brief training session for all teams, where they’ll learn more about their non-profit project requirements, establish a structure and set their schedule of tasks to complete it.
