Welcome to IABC Victoria

Since 1970, the International Association of Business Communicators (IABC) has set the standard of global excellence for communication professionals.

IABC Victoria is the world’s largest IABC chapter outside North America. We run an active program of events, networking opportunities, professional development, international certification and global industry awards.

Our members are part of a rapidly growing communication association and one that is fiercely focused on the needs of Victorian communication professionals.

Join us as we kick off the 2022 IABC Victoria events calendar – last year we were unable to hold our gala to celebrate the 2021 Bronze Quill Awards. So, we will gather together instead in early 2022 at the renovated State Library, present our Quill Awards as well as finally catch up with each other.

It will be a fun cocktail party, with delicious food and drinks – and great company!

We can’t wait to celebrate award-winning strategic communication work and meet like-minded communication professionals.

Grab your fanciest gear (dress is cocktail) and join us for one of our profession’s night of nights.

We’re looking forward to seeing you there.

Date: 24 March 2022
Time: 6pm – 8pm
Cost: $65
