IABC 101: An Association Overview
#IABCLI
Robin Russell McCasland
@Robinrox

IABC was created in 1970 by the merger of two communication associations in the USA and Canada.

Today, our membership resides in roughly 80 countries. Many belong to local chapters but some are called "Members at-large" because they're not linked with any chapter based on geography.

IABC has eight regions that help support the chapters in their parts of the world. Some regions are more established than others, based on our association's history and growth.
Canada
West

Canada
East

Southern
Pacific
Plains

Europe
Middle East
& N. Africa

Asia Pacific
Africa
Some of our regions cover a lot of turf. The Asia Pacific Region, for example, doesn't have as many members overall, but it covers a lot of territory across the globe.

The Southern Region, in contrast, contains more chapters than any other region. Like all parts of the world, some chapters are large, some are very small but equally effective.

When we refer to large chapters, nothing compares with Toronto. The chapter, based in the Canada East region, is the largest in IABC. Toronto alone claims about 10 percent of our membership.

Some regions are organized geographically, while others are based more on historic relationships in IABC's former district structure.


IABC's first chapter outside of North
America is IABC Philippines. The chapter
has been thriving for more than 30 years!
Now, let's look at a year in the life of IABC.

The first image provides an overview of the many things the IABC headquarters staff manages, day-to-day.

The second image is a condensed timeline of major programs and activities that take place annually in the association.

The third image shows the interdependence among local chapters, IABC regions and the international board and headquarters.

The fourth image illustrates our association structure in greater detail. We'll talk about the MANY ways you can be a leader in IABC!

Wake up and pay attention; this is good stuff to know.

The IABC headquarters staff is here to support you. If you have questions about anything, call: +1-415-544-4700. (USA Pacific time zone) or email
member_relations@iabc.com.

Also, on IABC.com, you'll find a list of staff members, their areas of responsibility and email addresses.

Let's take a
quick tour of
our regions
around the world!
IABC is headquartered in San Francisco, CA, and recently moved to a smaller, more cost-effective office space!










We even have chapters in Barbados (seen here), Jamaica and Trinidad-Tobago!

You may have noticed...I didn't show Mexico, Central and South America. We do, however, have at-large members in those areas.

IABC once had a "sister" relationship with AMCO, an association for Mexican communication professionals, and one of AMCO's members also served on our IEB.
