Frontline workers are the critical backbone of a company, and their commitment is important to a company’s success. However, effectively engaging with non-desk workers requires a departure from traditional approaches often geared towards office staff. Jennifer Walsh of futureAlign Inc. and Wade Williams, KBR's Director of Projects, will present some new approaches they developed for field personnel that helped to achieve bold safety records, reduced attrition, increased productivity and created a workplace where people want to work. This event is free for members and $15 for non-members, with an optional donation to the IABC Houston scholarship fund. Click here for full event information and registration.

We know that some of our members are struggling with underemployment or unemployment due to the global COVID-19 pandemic. But we think COVID-19 has taken enough. Our IABC Houston Board believes that now is a time when professional communicators need each other, professional development, and (virtual) networking the most. That’s why we've created a limited number of Hardship Scholarships that will cover the full cost of IABC membership for one year.

If you'll promise to stay connected to our IABC Houston community, we'll promise to have your back. Click here for the fine print on eligibility criteria and to apply. The deadline is Dec. 31, 2020.
