IABC Central Oklahoma

The Central Oklahoma chapter of IABC is one of the oldest communication organizations in Oklahoma. Our chapter began in the 1940s as the Southwest Association of Industrial Editors. As the organization grew, it was renamed the Society of Associated Industrial Editors, which in the mid-1950s, merged into the International Council of Industrial Editors.

IABC was born in 1970 as a merger between the American Association of Industrial Editors and the International Council of Industrial Editors. Today, the IABC community has more than 13,000 members worldwide. Here in Central Oklahoma, our members represent a broad foundation of communications experts. They work in major international corporations, financial institutions, government entities, non-profit organizations and as independent consultants.
