From now until April 12, the Heritage Region is accepting nominations for scholarships to attend the World Conference in Vancouver. Don't miss out on this great professional development opportunity.
From June 9 – 12, communicators from around the globe will gather in Vancouver, British Columbia for the 2019 IABC World Conference. With the theme Think Forward, the conference will explore new challenges and opportunities facing the communication profession. Thought leaders, communications professionals, and students will gather to discuss the state of the industry and learn how to be better at our craft.
The Heritage Region wants to support chapter and member-at-large leaders and volunteers who routinely dedicate time for IABC, but may not have the financial ability to attend the world conference. Two scholarships are available – inclusive of the $1,540 standard registration fee and a $300 stipend toward travel/accommodations.
Who can nominate?
- Each IABC Heritage Region chapter can nominate one individual from the chapter
- Heritage Region Board members may nominate an individual
- Heritage Region members-at-large may self-nominate. Up to one member-at-large application will be forwarded with the other applications for evaluation by the scholarship selection panel
For more details, review the attached overview. Then, submit your nomination using this form. The deadline to submit nominations is April 12, 2019. Recipients will be announced by the end of April.
