IABC/Tulsa Member Earns International Accreditation

IABC/Tulsa Member Shannon Frederick has earned IABC’s Accredited Business Communicator (ABC) designation.

IABC’s accreditation process measures the strategic abilities and technical skills of a communicator. In order to become accredited, a candidate must demonstrate the ability to plan, direct, implement and evaluate a broad range of communication programs in practical, real-life situations. The process consists of rigorous evaluation that identifies and recognizes highly qualified, well-rounded communicators through a review of their portfolio of work, and through written and oral examinations. Candidates who meet the requirements of the process earn the ABC designation.

Shannon, who is director of Global Associate Communications for Walmart, serves on the Board of Directors for our Tulsa chapter. This past October, she received the Leon Bolen Chapter Service Award for her extraordinary commitment to supporting IABC/Tulsa. Shannon is also slated to speak at the IABC World Conference in San Diego this June.
