Defined by communication professionals worldwide, the annual Southern Region Conference program will be aligned to the IABC Global Standard. Applying that standard enables us to cross all borders, align with diverse cultures and effectively serve organizations of all types and sizes.
The conference agenda will include keynotes, panel discussions and individual speakers targeted specifically to communication professionals. Sessions are organized by tracks that focus on leadership, strategy, reputation, marketing, brand, employee engagement and communication skills.
Attendance at connect18 will help you meet the application requirements for Communication Management Professional (CMP) certification. And if you already have your certification through the GCCC (Global Communication Certification Council), those credits may be applied toward maintaining your certification.
The connect18 Opening Reception will be held at the Tin Roof, a well-known Nashville live music venue. Attendees with a full conference registration are invited to join us Wednesday, October 17.
The Original Tin Roof opened near Nashville’s famed Music Row to give musicians a place to play and a place to hang when they weren’t on stage. The tasty food, fun, eclectic environment, community of regulars and friendly crew quickly established the Roof as the place to be for musicians and non-musicians alike. Over the years, the Tin Roof stages have hosted the famous, the should have been famous, and everyone in between.
