Update: Celebrating our Music City Gold Pen Award winners

A message from IABC英雄联盟乐博网址 President Kerry Burke:

你可能知道, we sadly had to postpone our virtual Music City Gold Pen Awards ceremony last week due to cyber security issues. This was an extremely unfortunate occurrence, 并不能反映我们的组织, nor does it take away from the accomplishments of the award winners. I’m proud of our board’s quick response in getting out timely communication 和 outreach, we are eager to move forward 和 celebrate Music City’s top communicators.

To properly honor the outst和ing accomplishments of our award winners, we are shifting our virtual celebration from a live Zoom event to 社交媒体活动 周一,9月20日. 跟随我们 脸谱网, LinkedIn, 推特, as we share individual posts recognizing our community’s award-winning communicators 和 their entries. Please join us in celebrating our winners by liking, commenting, sharing with your networks. These winners deserve all the praise in the world, so help let’s spread the word 和 cheer them on!

As members of the International Association of Business Communicators (IABC), an organization with an emphasis on learning, we would like to turn our misfortune into a learning 和 teaching opportunity. We will focus our next professional development event on video conferencing, 网络安全, ways to keep your presentations 和 organizations safe. We will also hear from experts in these fields. Please keep an eye out for details coming soon.

I’ll end by touching on one of the many lessons I am taking away from this experience – that when unexpected challenges arise, 人们可以以最友善的方式出现. Our chapter leadership has received many messages 和 phone calls over the past few days – not criticizing or blaming, 但提供支持, 同情, 和鼓励. This is a testament to our IABC organization 和 the support we have for one another in good times 和 in bad.

Thank you to our communications community for your underst和ing, kindness, support. 我们期待很快“见到”你.
