This past week I was invited to speak on a business panel at Central Connecticut State University. The International Association of Business Communicators held a discussion about nonprofit and local businesses in the non corporate environment.
What is the IABC? The International Association of Business Communicators is a “global network of communication professionals committed to improving organizational effectiveness through strategic communication. Established in 1970, IABC serves more members in 80 countries with more than 100 chapters.”
What I love most about events like these are that every participant, whether on the panel or in the audience, walks out learning something new.
My favorite part…a toss up. I had two favorite parts:
- Learning how other nonprofits go about recruiting their volunteers
- Confirming the fact that most nonprofit founders and employees are used to wearing many hats (I can certainly attest with my nonprofit, All New American)
A special thank you to Connor Delany, Jamie Bonito, Lauren Escott and the International Association of Business Communicators for having me!
