I hope you’re adjusting to the quick change in seasons. We gone from summer to winter, it seems, in a matter of days!
The next two months I’ll be planning for 2012, and it’s on that note that I wanted to let you know about an upcoming rate change for IABC.
IABC’s International Executive Board (IEB) has approved a 3% increase. For us, that means an increase of $7 per year towards your international dues.
In this economy, any rate increase is a challenge; however, this rate increase allows IABC to continue to offer the same quality of programs, services and member benefits, and to develop new benefits. Some of those benefits include free-to-member web seminars. There are two coming up:
- Calibrating Your Role as a Communicator: Industry-agnostic Perspective on How to Guide Your Career presented by Susan San Martin, Plan B Communications, LLC, November 9, 1–2 p.m. PST
- The Emergence of the Social Intranet presented by Toby Ward, Prescient Digital Media, December 7, 9–10 a.m. PST
Renew or join early
The rate change takes place at the start of 2012, so I encourage you to consider renewing or joining in the next two months, particularly if you plan to do so in the first quarter next year. By doing so, you’ll take advantage of current rates for as long as possible.
IABC/Philadelphia upcoming events
We’re a week away from a fantastic seminar with Ken O’Quinn: “Influencing Your Audience: Crafting Messages That Motivate People to Say Yes Date.” It’s taking place November 15 from 9 a.m.–noon at the La Salle University campus in Plymouth Meeting.
You can register here. I hope to see you there!
Be sure to also mark your calendars for our IABC/Philadelphia holiday party on December 15 at Spamps in Conshohocken.
All the best,
