One of IABC/BV’s core purposes is encouraging the betterment of its members through professional development. Information on upcoming monthly programs, workshops, and seminars can always be found on the chapters main page and registration areas.
Monthly professional development programs
Eight months a year, IABC/BV offers a professional development program about a business communications topic. Lunch is included and it’s a great opportunity to network with other local communicators. Meetings are from 11:45 am. to 1:00 p.m. on the third Thursday of selected months at Briarcrest Country Club, 1929 Country Club Drive, Bryan, TX. Check the Upcoming Events page for details about upcoming meetings.
Four months a year, IABC/BV sponsors informal networking nights at various locations. There’s no agenda and the atmosphere is strictly casual—just bring yourself and a willingness to converse with your fellow local communicators. Check the Upcoming Events page for details about future networking nights.
Workshops and seminars
We regularly offer special workshops on various issues in business communications, public relations and marketing. Recent workshops have focused on strategic communications planning and social media management. Meeting times and places will be announced in the member newsletter and on the chapter’s web site.
The annual IABC World Conference and the annual IABC Southern Region Conference both offer excellent sessions covering timely (and timeless) issues business communicators face. The World Conference also includes opportunities for networking with colleagues from around the nation and the world.
