What a year!
If you attended our stellar Capital Awards Gala this year, you know that our chapter announced our progression to be the third largest in the world. Since then, we've moved into second largest across all IABC chapters, behind Toronto! Wow, thank you for continuing to build an incredibly strong communications community in our city.
I also want to personally thank everyone who completed our member survey early this year. We really appreciate having your insights to help the board as we head into our annual planning session.
We’ve posted the full results on our website here. In the meantime we’ve included a few highlights below. If you didn’t get a chance to complete the survey, but you want to share feedback, ideas or find out how you can become involved, send us a note at firstname.lastname@example.org.
And, congratulations to Lindsay Jessup, winner of our random draw for a free ticket to the Capital Awards!
