Who we are
IABC/BC is a vibrant community of professionals working in communication and marketing related disciplines driving business results through strategic communication. We support each other – across industries and regions – through sharing knowledge, leading on best practices, formal and informal mentoring, certification and awards.
World-wide, IABC is a strategically-oriented organization, and our chapter is aligned with the direction of IABC Canada and our international community. Working in close connection with IABC Canada and IABC International, our chapter strives to be the preferred organization for communication professionals within British Columbia, bringing like-minded individuals together to share and learn from one another.
With over 400 members in British Columbia, we are one of the largest IABC chapters in the world.
Our Volunteer Team
Here in the BC chapter of IABC our team consists of the executive leadership (President, Vice President, Past President and Finance Director), a board of directors, portfolio managers and other volunteers. We believe that team work makes the dream work so we strive to have lots of talented professionals collaborating together towards common goals.
