IABC Lehigh Valley event at TechVentures

Founded in 1970, The International Association of Business Communicators (IABC) provides a professional network of about 15,000 business communication professionals in over 80 countries. Members hold positions in:
  • Public relations/Media relations
  • Corporate communications
  • Public affairs
  • Investor relations
  • Government relations
  • Marketing communication
  • Community relations
  • Writing
  • Editing
  • Training
  • Advertising
  • Photography and video production
  • Graphic design
  • Human resources
  • Teaching

I attended a number of events hosted by the Lehigh Valley IABC chapter a few years ago, and after a brief hiatus, the group is starting up again. This should be welcome news to those of us who work in the fields listed above, and those of you who are looking for work in the field.

On April 27, visit the Ben Franklin TechVentures incubator/post-incubator facility to learn how (my friend) Ben Franklin President and CEO Chad Paul and his team have supported aspiring technology entrepreneurs in the greater Lehigh Valley with one of the best incubators of the world. The group will also take a tour of TechVentures and see why TechVentures2—the new, 47,000-square-foot addition—earned first-place national honors in the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s 2011 ENERGY STAR Challenge.
