    “Season of Giving” Luncheon

    The holidays are upon us, and there’s no greater time to give back! Join IABC Dallas for this special, workshop-style lunch, where you’ll be able to give the gift of your communications expertise to a local nonprofit in need.

    This month, we’re switching up our format entirely – meeting at the sleek offices of Weber Shandwick, overlooking Victory Plaza in Dallas. In this hackathon-style workshop, you’ll team up with one of five nonprofits that has a specific communications challenge they’re working to solve. As you ask questions to get to the heart of their needs, you’ll spend the hour brainstorming with them, ultimately outlining a solution they can take back with them and implement.

    It’s a completely different type of lunch than we normally do, and while you’ll be giving your skills, you’re sure to take away lots of learnings of your own!

    Note: At this event, we are offering a slightly paired down (but don’t worry, still delicious and filling!) lunch buffet. In the spirit of giving, we are donating our proceeds to the IABC Foundation.

    There will be no walkup registration at this luncheon, and seating is limited – register now!
