These first weeks of summer have been busy as we bring on new board members and make plans for delivering relevant, exciting and valuable chapter offerings to you!I’m delighted and honored to be your new chapter president and have recorded a special video message to officially kick off the board year! Take a look, and don’t forget to leave a comment with your ideas of how we can continue to create value for you.

Here’s to an exciting year ahead!

Get to know our board! 
Our new board is a team of over two dozen talented, smart, innovative individuals who are volunteering their time for our chapter. Along with connecting with SF IABC on social media, you can follow me (@CoachKamna) on Twitter and Instagram, where I love to share the great work our volunteers are doing and their smiling faces!

Past leaders continue to shine
Check out this month’s Member Spotlight with SF IABC Past President Ed Kamrin, who is now the Chair of the IABC Pacific Plains Region. (Also known as PPR, and you’ll have to read the article to learn what it is!) Ed and I share the same philosophy about IABC: It’s a community, and we’re going to be here for a while! #iabcforever

  1. Hello, San Francisco IABC chapter. It’s good to see that in the dog days of summer, our IABC chapter doesn’t sleep. Click on the “special video message” from our new chapter president, Kamna Narain, and let the chapter board know what you want to see in the way of content and events this year. (And, of course, let us know if you’d like to volunteer with us this year. It’s going to be a great year to get involved. Sue Stoney, VP of Communications.
