Thank you to everyone who attended our gala on Jan. 28, 2017 at WinSport to help us celebrate our 50th anniversary. Here’s a snapshot of what happened that night!
A video tribute
Check-out our 50th Anniversary video and let some of our members tell you why they love IABC/Calgary!
Sharing our history
Throughout 2017, we shared stories and memories about the history of IABC/Calgary and how communications has evolved and changed over the past 50 years.
Expanding our knowledge
We launched an education video series in 2017. These interviews offered tips and information about communications strategy and tactics.
Bringing together past board members
We brought together past presidents and Board members to share stories and insights about volunteering for IABC/Calgary. The event was held in the spring. Read past president Will Tigley’s blog post about his Top 10 greatest hits leading the chapter.
Leaving a legacy
We created an endowment fund to establish a legacy award for the next three years. The award provides a deserving IABC/Calgary member with the gift of knowledge by providing funding for attending an IABC conference, furthering their communications education at an academic institution or taking part in a professional development program.
Recognizing 50 years of volunteering
At our year-end event we recognized volunteers with a special tribute to those who have volunteered with IABC/Calgary over the past 50 years. Our chapter would not be where it is today, without the help and support of people who have generously given their time.
