In 1970, the American Association of Industrial Editors and the International Council of Industrial Editors merged to form IABC, joined later by the Corporate Communicators of Canada, ultimately propelling communication to be at the heart of every organization. Visionary leaders created a platform from which every communication professional would have the opportunity to understand what it means to be a strategic communicator. 

IABC Nashville is committed to helping Central Tennessee and Western Kentucky thrive by increasing recognition that communication practices drive business. If you want to increase your visibility among the region’s top business, learn from the best and brightest in the industry and belong to a vibrant, diverse communications community, IABC Nashville is the place to be!
