Last month we announced the very exciting news that our premier regional conference for communication professionals, Fusion19, would be held in Hong Kong. Year-on-year this has been an outstanding event bringing together communicators from across the region for learning, networking and professional development.
Now, we're calling for your help to make it happen. We are seeking nominations for Conference Chair and Conference Committee members. The Conference Chair will oversee the event and co-manage the budget with the support of the IABC APAC board.
There are a number of roles for Conference Committee members including: Program Advisory, Communications, Content Marketing, Sponsorship, and Logistics. These roles are task specific and are open to IABC members from across the whole region.
A professional event company will be appointed to liaise with the chosen venue, build marketing plans to promote the event, support promotion through other channels, and manage event logistics for the conference and the Silver Quill Awards gala.
This is an outstanding opportunity to be a part of this leading event for communication professionals. If you are interested in applying to be Conference Chair or a Conference Committee member please email email@example.com by Wednesday 17 April expressing your interest.

In this interactive webinar, storyteller extraordinaire and IABC friend, Gabrielle Dolan, will give participants the opportunity to identify four storytelling styles. Gabrielle will explore what makes a story a story and the considerations you should think about when sharing stories in business. Join Gabrielle as you learn how to implement storytelling effectively and the common mistakes to avoid.
