Gift of Communication

The Gift of Communication event is going virtual and happening Sunday, 14 June 2020. This pre-conference session has been offered at the World Conference through the IABC Foundation since 2010. Participating communication professionals give pro bono advice to help a local charitable organization to address a pressing communication challenge.

IABC participants will have an opportunity to:

Make an impact that benefits the local area.

  • Provide communication advice and counsel that makes a difference.
  • Get professional development experience.
  • Be part of a success story grounded in real-world challenges.
  • See the power and value of communication in action as a force for good in the world.

Gift of Communication also supports local communities

In addition to the event at the World Conference, the Gift of Communication program takes place throughout the global IABC community; in fact, some of the most successful experiences have happened through IABC chapters. If you are part of an IABC chapter, you will gain insights on how to implement a Gift of Communication event in your own area.

All sessions are full.
