They should simply use the code IABC4ME now through Dec. 31. And as the referring member, you’ll be entered to win some prizes, too! 

    One of Our Own Named Southern Region 2020 Communicator of the Year

    Robin McCasland, long-time IABC Dallas member and past president (2001), received the 2020 Communicator of the Year recognition at the Southern Region’s Silver Quill Awards ceremony in November.

    The award honors an IABC member who demonstrates excellence in professional communication practice and IABC leadership. Robin’s IABC accomplishments include:

    • U.S. District 5, 2003 (treasurer) and 2006 (chapter services director);
    • Research Foundation, 2007-10 (chairman, 2009); and
    • International Board, 2012-2­015 (chairman, 2014).


    “I’ve been an IABC member for nearly 30 years. I stay involved because it provides the opportunity to learn from the best communication leaders across the globe,” Robin says. “I’ve also gained additional professional experience while leading locally and internationally. I’ve been referred to more than a few worthwhile career roles because of the close relationships I’ve developed over time with other IABC members.”  

    Robin is director, Corporate Communications, for Health Care Service Corporation.
