New! Join IABC/Toronto Westend group for networking and connections

Are you a westender? IABC/Toronto Westend is a networking sub-group for members who live and work in Oakville, Mississauga, Brampton and other westend locales. The distance from Toronto can make it difficult to attend IABC/Toronto events downtown, so we organize occasional networking events out this way.
Serving more than 280 IABC/Toronto members, the Westend group is a great way for communicators to build on their IABC connections and get even more value from their membership.
There is no additional charge to belong to this networking group. Simply provide your contact information and let us know you want to be part of it. Of course, you can opt out any time. We also invite you to join our LinkedIn group as another way to extend your network.
Visit Westend Communicators for more information.
