– Paul Omodt, Chapter President

When I think about the best part of being an IABC member, I know it is the people I have met, the things they have taught me, and the connections that endure that are the best part. Meeting others dedicated to improving their communication skills and hearing how they tackle communication challenges always inspires me to do better work. Thanks to all my IABC connections.

One way we can all connect is coming up – our annual holiday gathering. This year, we are going to Mingle at Park Tavern on December 13 from 4:30 to 6:30 pm, and we will be joined by our friends at MIMA who co-host this with us. Meeting a new crop of professional communicators is always interesting and showcases how IABC Minnesota is always finding new and fresh ways for us to connect.

To make your Mingle more enjoyable, this year, I have decided to sponsor the event along with our friend Tony Cheevers of ResearchScape and substance and sums communications, led by Katy Sullivan. Our sponsors help us ensure we can network and connect – so, thanks to all of our sponsors. (And shout out to Brandpoint for always being there as an annual sponsor.)

The holidays are a time to spend with friends and family. I know when I go to Mingle, I will be among my friends and my IABC Minnesota family. I look forward to seeing you all!
