RGD confirms partnership with largest IABC chapter worldwide
As a result of outreach from RGD's PR Committee, the Association has recently confirmed a agreement with the Toronto Chapter of the International Association of Business Communicators (IABC), the largest IABC Chapter in the world. 


IABC has over 15,000 members in 80 countries worldwide, representing a broad range of communications and business disciplines including PR, media relations, corporate communications, human resources, government relations, marketing and business leadership. As the world's largest chapter, IABC Toronto has received Awards of Excellence for leadership and professional development, chapter management and 'International Chapter of the Year' for 2015. 


"We're excited to announce this new partnership with IABC Toronto as it will open up even more opportunities to promote RGD and the RGD designation among communication professionals and the business world." says Wendy Millard, Chair of RGD's PR Committee. "We're always looking to highlight the value of design and the contributions of creative professionals, and relationships with related business organizations such as this represent an important platform for this message. This partnership is a major milestone for both organizations! " 


Through this agreement, RGD Members will benefit from discounted rates to attend IABC Toronto events and the opportunity to connect with the world's largest network of business communicators. Through promotion on the IABC Toronto website, e-newsletters and social media channels, RGD also looks forward to reaching a business audience with news of our programs and initiatives to reinforce the value of design and the contributions of creative professionals.


IABC Toronto joins RGD's growing list of Partner Organizations, including SDGQ, AMPA, EAC, IDC, Magazines Canada, IABC Ottawa, IABC Waterloo and others, as part of our continued effort to raise awareness of RGD and the RGD professional designation and offer networking and professional development opportunities to our members.
