Hello to our newest member

IABC | Greater Cincinnati is pleased to welcome Judy Sroufe, Vice President of Marketing and Communications at Standard Textile. Come say hello to Judy and other members at our events, including the upcoming Challenge Accepted! competition and 40th anniversary celebration.

Deadline for entries extended for Challenge Accepted!


Apply by February 14

We have extended the deadline for applications for presenters for our first-ever community communications challenge event.

Challenge Accepted! is a NEW event that lets local communicators share their unique solution to a communication problem they’ve faced in the workplace. Each 5–7 minute presentation is an opportunity for a communicator to showcase his or her 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 a favorite local nonprofit to receive a financial donation, compliments of IABC Greater Cincinnati and our event sponsors.

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

Apply to present now.

Sponsorships are also available. Special thanks to our current sponsors:


Local chapter member presenting at World Conference


Sara Jackson presenting “Demonstrating ROI to move your communication forward”

saraCongratulations to local IABC member Sara Jackson, who is taking her presentation “Demonstrating ROI to move your communication forward” to Vancouver in June. Sara, Executive Director of Internal Comms Pro, will share with participants of the IABC World Conference how they can strategically reveal industry metrics and compare them to data dashboards to evolve from tactical taskmaster to the can’t-live-without-strategist.

“Over the course of hundreds of conversations with communications professionals, I have noticed that they all struggle with finding the right way to convey the value of their work to their audience and to their leadership,” Sara says. “With so many of us becoming a one-woman or one-man department, it is difficult to not drown in the day-to-day tasks that prevent us from truly leveraging the power of communication.”

Sara’s session is one of nearly 50 offerings at the 2019 World Conference, which will be June 9 – 12 in Vancouver, British Columbia. Registration is now open for the conference.
