President's Letter

A Letter From Larisha Hunter, IABC Central Oklahoma 2015-2017 Chapter President

It’s all about you.  At our annual board retreat, the board discussed at length our goals and tasks for this next term. Over and over, we kept coming back to our central focus – you. It may sound cliché, but our members are the only reason we have a chapter. And the biggest reason we skip out on lunch, family time or weekends.  So we’ve developed a strategic plan focusing on building and developing our chapter so we can increase the caliber of professional development and resources you need to take your career or business to the next level.

While I don’t want to give away all the surprises, the board has come up with a lot of ideas this year we believe will increase the value of your membership, increase your network and put the latest industry trends at your fingertips.

Some of our upcoming goals:

  • Chapter Growth – More members means an increase to your professional network, and with IABC an increase in communication focus areas to lean on.
  • Regional Speakers – We like to keep it local, but we also know the value of sharing ideas with our neighbors across the state, and across our region.
  • More Options  - Not every member can make it to a long lunch, so we’ll bring our superb professional development to breakfast, happy hour and your tablet too.

We hope you are as excited as we are. As we are always interested in hearing from our members, please let us know how we can better serve you. 

Oh, and be sure to say “Hi” to your board members. They work hard for you.


Larisha Hunter, President
