Student Membership

Yeah, but I’m still in school

You are one of us!

Meet people who can get you jobs, give you the practical insight you can’t learn in school and help you build your career in communications. As a student member, you’ll be amazed at how everyone at IABC Edmonton treats you like part of the group. All we care about is that you love communications too! You’ll also have access to great resources that will help you get better and better at what you do.

We offer exclusive student-only mentoring events as well as events where you can meet some of the most senior communicators in Edmonton. As a full-time student or part-time student who is not working in communications, you’ll find mentorship opportunities, the inside scoop on jobs, opportunities to showcase your work and develop skills, all for a low annual fee.

If you meet the qualifications for a student membership, fill out and submit the student membership application. *Please select Student Membership.
