IABC stands for International Association of Business Communicators. IABC Nashville members and guests enjoy networking opportunities each month through professional development luncheons and more informal social “mixers” during the year.
Our chapter is diverse, with members representing regional/national public relations agencies, marketing firms, corporations, universities and nonprofit organizations. Monthly luncheons feature guest speakers offering professional development opportunities.
Beginning March 2014, our monthly lunch program moves to Maggiano’s Little Italy, located at 3106 West End Avenue, Nashville, TN from 11:30am to 1pm. Valet and Free parking is available.
Our mission is to provide learning opportunities for our members. Our professional development sessions provide members with new insights into the latest communication trends, technology, and issues facing the industry. Our goal is to help our members achieve their own objectives whether it’s strengthening their current duties and responsibilities, career advancement, exposure to new concepts and media, keeping up with the latest technology, or establishing a valuable network of professional contacts.
IABC Nashville offers; ties to new career opportunities, job bank services, student mentoring and engagement events, and its annual GOLD PEN Awards program, recognizing excellence in communications.
