The Barbados Chapter of the International Association of Business Communicators (IABC) is pleased to announce its Annual General Meeting (AGM) scheduled for Thursday, January 25, 2024, at Frank Collymore Hall, Central Bank of Barbados.
Current and prospective members of IABC Barbados are invited to attend this meeting, which is expected to provide a platform for communication professionals to connect, share experiences, and contribute to the growth of our vibrant community.
President of IABC Barbados, Dr. Pamala Proverbs, is encouraging communication professionals across the island to join the association. The President stated that she is determined to see communication treated with the same level of respect as other professions. She further explained that IABC, as a recognized professional body for communicators, can play a significant role in achieving this goal.
President Proverbs added, “As a body, we have been working consistently to provide networking and professional development opportunities for our members. Last year, we had some successes. For example, Christal Austin, a former president of IABC Barbados, was a presenter at the World Conference, and we also hosted at least two local professional development events for members, one of which attracted participation from an international presenter. This year, we are hoping to build on this and get more members involved not only locally but internationally through participation in the World Conference slated for Chicago in June or through volunteerism on one of the internal committees.”
The agenda for the upcoming AGM includes a comprehensive review of the Chapter's activities, financial report, and the election of new officers to the Executive Board.
