March 14, 2019

Union Hall Cincinnati

Enjoy food, drinks and fun during a friendly competition – all for a good cause!

Challenge Accepted! is a NEW event that lets local communicators share their unique solution to a tough communication problem they’ve faced in the workplace. Each 5–7 minute presentation is an opportunity for a communicator to showcase their best work.

The audience – including fellow communicators and leaders at area businesses and nonprofits – will vote on the best solution. The winning communicator gets the thrill of choosing their favorite local nonprofit to receive a financial donation, compliments of IABC Greater Cincinnati.

Join us to celebrate excellence in communication during our 40th year as we mark this milestone with a gift to the community.

Several members of our local chapter had the privilege of attending this year’s Heritage Region Conference November 11 – 13 in Richmond, Virginia. Connie Feick, Pat Frey, Sara Jackson, Jackiedra Wilson and Joy Lovejoy took part in the two and half day event that was chock full of networking and development opportunities. This year’s topics covered everything from hard skills like grammar and crisis communication to leadership development and emerging trends–all against the backdrop of one of America’s most history-rich cities.

Special recognition to Joy and Pat, who served on the conference planning committee, and congratulations to Jackiedra Wilson, who received a Silver Quill Award for excellence in communication.
