Volunteers needed! Where can you help out?

Call for volunteers – your talents and time are needed to help KC IABC offer the most value to members and prospective members.

You do not have to be a member to volunteer for any of the following. Check out our many opportunities and let us know your area of interest!

Help with registration at our monthly meetings and stay for the event. You’ll benefit from the program and meet everyone as they come in. You don’t have to be a member and it’s a once-a-month commitment. We meet at various venues around Kansas City and you’d need to arrive at 11:15 a.m. for lunch or 7:45 a.m. for breakfast. Contact Roy Harryman to volunteer.



Monthly lunch or breakfast programs sponsored by KC IABC provide excellent opportunities for professional development on a wide variety of topics that are crucial for communicators. Help is needed to select topics, line up speakers and venues, coordinate communications, etc. Please contact Stephanie Morris if you can assist with this important task.

Photographers and bloggers needed

If you have a way with words or with a camera, we need ongoing help. We need photographers to shoot our monthly meetings and events, including our special interest groups.

We have an active blog on the home page of our website, kciabc.com. We are looking for bloggers to write short entries on any topic of interest to communicators. It can be an observation from a meeting you attended at IABC or another professional organization; or a commentary on a topic that relates to communications, leadership, technology, etc. We prefer short blog posts – just a few hundred words will do the job. Please contact Elaine Symanski to volunteer.

General ongoing volunteer needs

Contact Roy Harryman to volunteer for any of the following:

  • List maintenance and clean up.
  • Student outreach.
  • Member appreciation events.

Not sure where your talents would be put to the best use? Contact Roy Harryman and he will help you find a spot where you can make a difference in the success of KC IABC during the coming months.

For more information on volunteering

Volunteers are the backbone of KC IABC. Our services and events are planned and organized by a dedicated and enthusiastic team of volunteers.

Getting involved in KC IABC is the best way to get the most from your membership. Aside from meeting people, networking and having fun, volunteers can also participate on committees to plan monthly programs or special events, learn new skills or serve on the board.

With a wide range of opportunities available, from short-term stints lasting just one day or committee involvement lasting several months, you can find something to meet your interests and availability.

KC IABC’s board wants your volunteer experience to be an enjoyable one that meets your professional and personal goals. Contact the KC IABC board for more information. If you have other ideas for how you could be involved with KC IABC, please let us know.
