Message from the Chair

A Message from the EMENA Region 2020-21 Chair, Ana Margarida Ximenes:

The 2020-21 IABC EMENA Board is up and running with some great initiatives for the year ahead. As the new Chair for this year’s board, I am humbled by the enthusiasm, team spirit. and dedication to our Region. As volunteers, our board members are taking time from their busy professional and personal lives to create an environment that is meaningful to  you.

And while COVID has had a such a tremendous impact on so many, COVID has not held us back as professional communicators from staying connected with one another and with our organizations and businesses around the world.

Next month we’ll host a first in a series of webinars on a variety of topics that will resonate with communicators far and wide. As we pull details together we’ll be providing updates soon. Next month we are also engaged in a cross-region networking event with our IABC Africa and APAC regions members. 

We look forward to hearing your ideas and insights. And, as always, if you know of someone who may be interested in joining our Region or getting involved, please let us know! 

We will use this board blog platform to post updates and information as we continue to improve our communication with you.

Thank you so much for all you do in keeping with our core values as communication professionals so vitally important to our credibility and transparency in all that we do.

Stay healthy!
