Special Interest Groups

Special Interest Groups (SIGs) offer an intimate setting of like-minded communicators from diverse backgrounds such as corporate, freelance, non-profit, government and education. We typically meet twice a year to support IABC Atlanta’s mainstream programming with in-depth discussions on selected topics.

The IABC Atlanta Employee Communications Special Interest Group brings together internal communicators to discuss best practices. Our format is typically interactive. We invite a subject matter expert to lead the discussion. These SIGs provide valuable opportunities for networking, gathering tips for re-energizing your campaigns and projects or just bouncing ideas off of each other during an informal lunch away from your computer.
Large, small, start-up and non-profit companies have been able to incorporate examples shared into their real-world roles. Past SIGs have featured:

  • Shima Kelly and Trey Crutchfield of UPS sharing their journey to launch their internal social collaboration platform
  • Sheryl Lewis of ROI Communication on strategic planning
  • Leslie McBride and Katy Mallory of AutoTrader Group with their tips for communicating across a diverse employee base
  • Professor Martin Eppler, visiting professor at Georia Tech and the Chair of Communications Management at the University of St. Gallen (Switzerland), leading a discussion on information overload environments
  • D. Mark Schumann, former IABC Chairman and all-star World Conference speaker, giving us a preview of his World Conference session
