Professional Development

The IABC NJ offers an annual slate of programs aimed at the professional development of our members, other local communication professionals, and students pursuing a career in communications. Our programs, which are typically held once a quarter, cover the latest trends or hottest topics in the field of communications, spanning the interests of public facing (e.g. PR, social media) to internally focused professionals (e.g. change management, intranet strategies).

Held in the evening and often on the campus of centrally located Farleigh Dickinson University, they are easily accessible for working professionals and students alike. Each program sets aside time for networking, offers food and beverages, and gives you the opportunity to meet and converse with our guest speaker or panellists. We encourage audience participation and try to make each event an intimate conversation between our subject matter guests and you. Some of our successful recent events include:

  • Change with Confidence: How communicators can help leaders lead change

  • Communication Lessons from the Campaign Trail

  • Social Media in Regulated Industries: Balancing Risk and Reward

  • Engaging Employees in a World of Distractions
