    Volunteer Spotlight

    With more than 20 years of employee communications experience, Pam Sabin has been associated with IABC Atlanta for almost as long, but rarely took advantage of her membership to attend meetings or events…until recently. In 2019, she struck out as a freelance writer and decided it was the perfect time to get involved and network within the organization.

    “When I stopped going into an office every day, I noticed it was difficult to socialize and bounce ideas off my peers,” Pam shared. “I decided to join the Atlanta chapter and volunteer with the Communications Committee, with a goal to meet some new people and learn more about social media.”

    Pam did get involved and meet people in the Chapter. She now manages our social media channels to promote events, speakers and community engagement. She is astonished that in just a few months, she was as comfortable on Hootsuite as she is on email!

    Pam’s newfound social media skills and IABC connections recently led her to a fantastic, full-time job opportunity! We thank Pam for lending her energy and willingness to learn to help promote our chapter’s happendings and offerings.
