Apply to join the 2018/19 IABC Edmonton Board of Directors


Amanda LeNeve | March 06, 2018

I may be a bit biased saying this, but it’s important to declare. It’s a great time to be on IABC Edmonton’s Board of Directors!

We have a stellar group that have been doing some amazing work. Working alongside people who are passionate about our profession and our community has been incredibly energizing for me — both as a volunteer as well as a communication professional.

And the work that our team has been doing is paying off, big time. IABC Edmonton is officially the second largest chapter in the WORLD! A few weeks ago, we were also honoured with several awards at IABC’s annual Chapter Management Awards including Large Chapter of the Year and the prestigious International Chapter of the Year. We’re also celebrating our 40th anniversary this year. None of these things would be possible without a strong overall membership and Board of Directors.

I have awesome news! It’s time for us to begin recruiting for our 2018-2019 Board of Directors. So, if you want to join a great team to serve an even greater group of members, you should check out our open positions and apply!
