Welcome to IABC Dallas!

You’re getting ready to start your career after college, but may want some opportunities that make you stand out. You might be searching for practical work experience. Or perhaps you want to meet some working professional communicators. Maybe you want guidance on which area of communications to pursue. You may be leaving your university town and want to make connections in your new location.

IABC can help you with all of this BEFORE you graduate.

Benefits for Students Who Join IABC

Member benefits at a fraction of the cost
Full professional membership costs are reduced 80 percent for full-time students. Also, students always receive a discount on admission to our events whether they are members or not.

Network with professional communicators
