Accreditation is an IABC professional development program offering communicators a way of demonstrating to employers, fellow communicators and themselves their ability to successfully manage and perform those tasks essential to effective organizational communication. Candidates meeting all requirements of the program earn the designation Accredited Business Communicator (ABC). IABC Brazos Valley has several ABCs: Rhonda Collins, ABC; Laura Nowlin, ABC; Nancy Sawtelle, ABC; David S. Jones, ABC; and Leanne South, ABC. Learn about how to earn your ABC on the IABC website.

This special interest group (SIG) was created within the chapter to support the ongoing professional development of communicators who have been in the profession for a minimum of five years. While the principles of good communication do not change, the methods, technology, and expectations that drive our profession do change. This group meets several times a year to network and discuss a specific communication or management topic that would primarily impact more senior-level professionals. Read more.
“If I’d only known then what I do now!” We’ve probably all uttered this statement at some point in our careers. So now you have a chance to help future communicators learn a little bit more! As the parent chapter of IABC/Texas A&M, members of IABC/Brazos Valley have the opportunity to share their energy, talent and knowledge about the field of communication through mentoring, speaking engagements, and internships.
