Independent Communicators’ Roundtable
SF IABC’s Independent Communicators’ Roundtable (ICR) meets face-to-face and communicates through e-mail to share best practices in managing and marketing our businesses, recommending resources, offering job leads, troubleshooting problems, and forming alliances. In other words, we help each other!
Our members include a wide range of consultants who help clients design and develop their marketing and corporate communications programs in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Our ranks include marketing and communications consultants, public relations professionals, writers, editors, graphic designers, website developers, photographers, and content strategists. Join us!
