Don’t forget…September 2011 is a Worldwide Membership Month! This means that for new or lapsed members who join or re-join IABC, the application fee is waived. Please remember: applications must be *received* at the San Francisco Headquarters office during the month of September to qualify. This promotion does not apply to current members, transitional members or students, who never pay the application fee anyway.
International is also hosting an open house of the members-only IABC website in September. For the month of September, the public will have free access to:
- Discovery, IABC’s new enhanced-search content archives. Discovery contains archives of Communication World magazine, CW Bulletin, and select Research Foundation reports, along with searchable Knowledge Centre manuals.
- MyComm, IABC’s online communication planning tool (although the public won’t be able to share plans)
- Read access to MemberSpeak and the IABC Buzz, IABC’s online areas where members ask questions and share personal and professional info
- The Job Centre, IABC’s job listing site (Members still have priority access to listings, however.)
To try it out, sign up at:
