It's About Time

Pre-conference events

We know you can't wait until the IABC World Conference 2021 kicks off, so we're excited to bring you these pre-conference events.

Annual General Meeting (AGM)

The 2021 Annual General Meeting will take place on 21 June from 3:00-5:00 p.m. CST. During the AGM, members will have the opportunity to hear updates from IABC Chair, Bonnie Caver, IABC Vice Chair, Danielle Bond, SCMP, IABC Executive Director, Peter Finn, and additional members of the IABC International Executive Board (IEB).

This event will take place on Zoom during the week before the World Conference. Please stay tuned for more information on what will be discussed during the AGM and registration details.

Gift of Communication

Each year, the IABC Foundation holds a Gift of Communication event during the World Conference. During the Gift event, conference attendees will work with the non-profits to provide pro bono communication counsel and training to help address communication challenges. We are working to select non-profits from each of IABC’s eight regions, making this a truly global event and to provide an opportunity for attendees to work with international organizations. Registration will be open to all attendees in May, but will be limited so be sure to register fast!

The Gift of Communication events will take place during the following times:

  • Monday, 28 June: 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m. PST (San Francisco)
  • Tuesday, 29 June: 11:40 a.m.-1:10 p.m. AEST (Melbourne)
  • Tuesday, 29 June: 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m. BST (London)
