Last year, I was awarded the IABC/BC New Navigator Wave Award award, which celebrates the achievements of a volunteer with IABC/BC of one to five years.
I was thrilled to be nominated in this category and delighted to win the award! Although my participation as a volunteer stemmed entirely from my passion for the profession, it felt wonderful to be recognized among other communicators in the region.
I enjoy volunteering and building my skills, network and experience with IABC/BC, but to be awarded based on the success of my volunteering team’s efforts was very encouraging. I often have to remind myself that volunteers take out time from their busy schedules to make a difference, and this is a great platform to celebrate and acknowledge individuals who have made a contribution to the chapter and communications profession.
I encourage you to recognize your peers, fellow volunteers or any communicator for their efforts, impact, knowledge and skills by nominating them for a Wave Award. Find out more on the Wave Awards webpage.
