Celebrate spring with PIC on June 15

Thursday, June 15, 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., Duke of York Pub, 39 Prince Arthur Avenue, Toronto
It’s not too late to say you’ll join IABC/Toronto’s Professional Independent Communicators (PIC) members and friends at our spring social this Thursday. Come meet new people or get to know others better, share ideas, rehearse your elevator speech or get answers to questions.
We’re meeting this Thursday at the Duke of York pub. If it’s warm enough to be on the patio, that’s where you’ll find us. As usual, it's pay-your-own way for drinks and snacks. Please let us know you're coming so we can save your seat.
