Marie Kilbane-Seckers, a Heritage Region member-at-large, shared her observations from the 2018 World Conference.

The IABC Heritage Region invites each Heritage Region chapter to send at least one chapter leader to the 2018 Heritage Region Leadership Institute (RLI): Revolutionizing IABC Leadership. This half-day session is dedicated to renewed and refocused leadership for driving results within IABC and beyond. The region is also providing each chapter a $500 stipend to help offset travel and lodging costs. Plus, the program is open to members-at-large who are interested in volunteering as a leader at the regional level.

Ready to work with a fun and focused virtual team? We're seeking an IABC member to take on an important volunteer role . Whether you are located near the 2018 conference venue in Richmond, VA, or anywhere else across the 17-state U.S. Heritage Region , you can make a meaningful difference to professional peers and business partners by serving as sponsorship chair or helping with sponsorships for the IABC Heritage Region Conference, which takes place Nov. 11-13, 2018.

To enable two motivated IABC members from the Heritage Region, who otherwise would find it financially difficult, to attend the 2018 IABC World Conference June 3-6 in Montreal, Canada.

IABC Heritage Region Conference scholarships offer chapter leaders and members-at-large who have strong volunteering experience a great opportunity to explore the region's signature professional development and networking event. After a careful application vetting process, evaluators chose this year’s winners: Poonam Sharma, a proposal writer for ASSYST and VP of social media for the DC Metro Chapter, and KayAnn Taylor Rutter, AVP of marketing for United Way of Central Ohio and a member of the Greater Cincinnati chapter. Here are their experiences.

Two of the three exceptional IABC members who were named Fellows this year are from our Heritage Region, a 17-state area that pans from Kentucky to Michigan to Maine to Virginia. Take a look at the accomplishments of Lee Hornick from the New York chapter and Brenda Siler from the DC Metro chapter, as well as Cindy Schmieg, ABC, from the Minnesota chapter (Pacific Plains Region).

Networking with open, interesting people ... innovative discussion formats ... practical how-to tips and more: This year's IABC World Conference experience was outstanding for our two scholarship winners, Connie Feick from the Greater Cincinnati chapter and Janet Swaysland from the Boston chapter. Swaysland described it as a terrific experience, including the sessions, social and self-discovery aspects. Feick called it "the best professional development event of my life." Find out why—take a look at their recaps.

Here's a chance to build new skills, share your expertise with others and give back to the profession while networking with outstanding communication professionals. The IABC Heritage Region Board and Heritage Region Conference have several open volunteer leadership opportunities.

Two special programs help IABC members achieve their potential as volunteer leaders at various levels—local, regional and international.

Our Regional Leadership Institute in the fall provides an opportunity to share challenges, ideas and best…

Learning, ideas and exploration ... every year the IABC Heritage Region Conference brings us new professional development and networking opportunities. Here are two experiences from the 2016 conference scholarship winners: Jennnifer Shatwell—CEO and principal consultant at KTNZ LLC and a regional volunteer—and Terri Wellman, who is communication manager at MediSync and IABC Greater Cincinnati Chapter board member.
