It’s still early in the year. You are busy making your game plans, both personally and professionally. You’re writing down ideas on where you’re going to go and what you’re going to do in 2018. You’re putting the finishing touches on your goals and objectives. You’re polishing your strategies and getting ready to put it all into action.
Do those goals include winning a 2018 IABC Edmonton Capital Award? If not, they really should!
If you have ever thought about applying for a Capital Award, but have procrastinated, put it off, or said “ maybe next year”- then this is the year to put those wheels into motion.
IABC Edmonton is celebrating 40 years in 2018. 40 years of professional communicators in our great city. 40 years of networking. 40 years of professional development opportunities. 40 years of celebrating our profession with the people who understand it best. Wouldn’t it be great to add some hardware to your collection this year?
The Capital Awards have always been the place to honour achievements in the communications field but this year will be even more special. On May 31st, at the Matrix Hotel, it all comes together in one big celebration to honour fellow practitioners in our community.
It takes time and planning to prepare a submission for the Capital Awards. It’s not something you jump into. It takes thought and organization and maybe even a bit of blood, sweat, and tears. But as many a previous winner can attest to, it’s totally worth it.
So while you’re putting those plans in place for the year, consider the work you did last year, think about which award category the work could fit into, and add “winning an IABC Edmonton Capital Award” to your plan. Check out IABC Edmonton Capital Awards where you can start pre-planning before entries open on February 28th.
After all, 40th anniversaries only come around once and work likes yours deserves to be recognized.
