The New York Chapter of IABC is a vigorous organization as dynamic and varied as the city itself. Members come together from a wide variety of industries and communication disciplines to share their expertise with one another through a broad range of activities. As the business communication environment evolves, members find more and more value in NY/IABC.
NY/IABC serves about 400 professional communicators who live and work in New York City and the surrounding areas. Some suburban members hold dual memberships—in the New York City chapter as well as in the New Jersey, Long Island, or WestFair chapters.
NY/IABC was founded in 1972. Since then, the nature of its membership has evolved and changed to reflect the New York City communication market. While most chapter members are employed in corporate communication, many members represent public relations and marketing communication agencies. Other chapter members are self-employed, typically serving as suppliers of professional services to the corporate market.
