Welcome to the IABC Pacific Plains Region
The Pacific Plains Region (PPR) supports the leaders and members of the region’s IABC (International Association of Business Communicators) chapters with resources and professional development opportunities. Our goal is to foster a collegial network of professionals engaged in all aspects of corporate communication and to extend opportunities to members to expand their leadership skills and experience by participating at the local, regional and international level.
Join the PPR Board in 2014-2015!
Are you ready to take your professional development to the next level? Are you looking for opportunities to connect with communicators from across the U.S. and around the world? Can you inspire others to be better communicators and better chapter leaders? If so, the IABC Pacific Plains Region (PPR) is looking for you – the seasoned communication professional whose skills, knowledge, and experience qualify you to serve as a “leader of leaders” within IABC.
