Calling all IABC chapter leaders!

The Leadership Institute is an opportunity for IABC chapter, regional and international leaders to come together to share best practices and learn how to create programs and services that keep members active and involved. It’s a fantastic opportunity to network with fellow leaders, build strong relationships and learn new skills useful in your IABC position and beyond. LI is held in February of each year.

The 2018 Leadership Institute (LI) will be taking place 8–10 February at the Hyatt Regency La Jolla in San Diego, California. Registration is now open for US$199. You can also book your room at the Hyatt Regency La Jolla under the IABC group rate of US$185 per night.

Scholarships available

Scholarships are also available for chapters that are struggling or rebuilding and in financial need. Interested chapters should complete an application and submit it no later than 30 November 2017.
