The IABC Montréal Board of Directors is proud to announce that the Montréal Chapter is expanding its horizons by becoming provincial. The chapter remains the largest bilingual IABC chapter in the world. In order to better represent the members spread across Québec, the name of the chapter is changing to IABC QC.

“The desire to position ourselves to bring together the entire community and communication expertise of the province has been taking shape over the past two years. There are many companies in Québec City, Trois-Rivières, Sherbrooke, and Gatineau that do business abroad and communicators who wish to network internationally, but who did not relate to a chapter identified as Montréal,” said Stéphane Prud’homme, Chapter President. “With a provincial chapter, we will now be able to offer the same services, appreciated by our members for 46 years, to all professionals in Québec who wish to network across the globe and connect with experts from everywhere.”

New name, same unbeatable offer

The name of the chapter is changing, but its mission remains the same and in fact, even better. The strength of IABC is undoubtedly the international reach of its community of thousands of communication professionals. Not to mention the scope and richness of its activities and content which cover all areas of communications including public relations to internal communication, including marketing. By the end of the year, IABC QC will be organizing in-person networking events across the province (as soon as permitted) and professional development events recognized in the Québec workplace. IABC QC has also been the driving force behind a high caliber mentoring program for a long time.

Another benefit of being a member of IABC is the globally recognized professional certification that meets ISO standards, the International Organization for Standardization. For more details on the CMP® and SMCP® titles, please visit gcccouncil.org.
