Mary FrancisAn Amazing Opportunity Awaits You!

They say you get what you put into something. Right? But, with IABC I find that I receive far more than I give. 

And, that can be true for you too. IABC membership offers so many benefits—professional development, networking and lifelong friends! It provides a multicultural, global perspective for all communication professionals.

My IABC adventure began during my first job when my boss encouraged me to attend the monthly luncheons. Years later, I started my own marketing communications firm and the IABC Houston Chapter became invaluable to my career. Somehow I ended up on the 2009 Southern Region Conference committee and I’ve never looked back!
