Last month, the KFM team had the opportunity to be part of something great. We participated in the planning and celebration of the BC Chapter of IABC’s (International Association of Business Communicators) 30th Anniversary Celebration.
On Wednesday, May 5th, 150 IABC/BC members arrived at Harrison Galleries, in downtown Vancouver, to raise a glass to the BC Chapter’s successful 30-year history – a history that has garnered the Chapter an international reputation for progressive and professional communication.
The event included a celebratory welcome, an awards ceremony, and an anniversary video produced by some of IABC/BC’s finest. Guests networked, sipped Champagne, and sampled a delicious array of hors d’oeuvres created by Nu Restaurant and Lounge (by C Restaurant). And who can forget the delectable desserts from Butter Baked Goods!
In the role of Event Manager and as one of the event sponsors, KFM had the luxury of working with members of the IABC/BC team in several capacities; As the Event Manager, I worked with the most incredible team of volunteers. The group was made up of current IABC/BC members who volunteered their time to support the momentous occasion. I’ve never worked with such a dedicated, talented and professional group. I was honoured to volunteer my time with such an inspiring group on an exciting and rewarding event. It was also great to work with industry suppliers that we, at KFM, love! Graphic Zoo, DJ Leanne, Upright Decor, and Lavish Liquid – you guys rock.
As one of the event sponsors, KFM was proud to support IABC/BC’s 30th Anniversary Event alongside other reputable brands such as Pink by Yellowglen, Ballistic Arts, Rigamarole, Whistler Water and CNW. We truly value the opportunity to support educational and important industry associations.
There’s great value in being an IABC/BC member. We network with and learn from the best communicators in the industry. The BC Chapter of IABC is one of 105 chapters worldwide and is the third largest chapter in Canada.
