Every August, a new board takes shape to develop and contribute to the conversation of Communications in Chicago and nearby. Our board consists of 14 roles that represent a variety of industries, disciplines, and are scattered throughout the city and suburbs. Now that we are half-way through the year, we invite you to get to know the board a little better…
After being a member of IABC for 2 years, Rebecca Shaffer has taken on the role of president for IABC Chicago. She specializes in internal comms, with an emphasis on comms audits, internal marketing plans, and events like town halls and leadership summits. When she’s not in Chicago, Rebecca enjoys spending her time in Italy and is waiting for the day (in the hopefully near future) she can return.
Peg Wander, our steadfast director of finance, has been a part of IABC for over 25 years. Her specialty is internal comms with a focus on diversity/inclusion. Peg also teaches university level courses that include critical thinking and career development. She has even had the pleasure of working with Michelle Obama prior to becoming First Lady.
