A good time for IABC accreditation

abcmonthIf you’re an IABC member and you’re thinking about becoming accredited – adding those letters ‘ABC‘ to your professional title – why not take advantage of Accreditation Month 2011, on from October 1 until mid November?

Accreditation is IABCs globally-recognized professional credential program. Anyone who applies during Accreditation Month will receive a certificate to use in the IABC Knowledge Centre and be entered in a drawing for special prizes selected to enhance the path to accreditation.

The Accreditation website offers rich resources to help you from applying right through to the process itself including eligibility requirements, sample exams and a readiness quiz.

Listen to a 25-minute interview I did with Jennifer Wah, chair of IABC’s Accreditation Committee, published yesterday. Jennifer talks at length about accreditation, the benefits and what help members can count on to successfully become an Accredited Business Communicator.

(Disclosure: I’m a long-standing IABC member, and co-host and produce the Cafe2Go podcast as unpaid volunteerism activity.)
