The 2013 IABC International Chapter of the Year is thrilled to offer a full-day workshop with Ann Wylie of Wylie Communications Inc.
If writing is an important part of your job and you’ve never had the opportunity to participate in an Ann Wylie workshop or seminar; you’re in for a treat! And if you’re already familiar with Ann, you’re probably checking your calendar and looking for the registration link.
Ann has worked with clients around the globe and is consistently recognized as a top-rated speaker at IABC and PRSA conferences and meetings from coast to coast. Join us as she brings her “Catch Your Reader” full-day workshop to Tulsa.
Expect to leave this event inspired and motivated – ready to return to the office with fresh ideas and new tools that help you:
- Think like a reader and move your audience to act
- Go beyond the inverted pyramid and master the feature-style story structure
- Cut through the clutter and make every piece you write easier to read and understand
- Rev up your readership and lift your ideas off the page or screen with display copy
This may be the most valuable professional development opportunity you’ve had this year – or may even have next year. And IABC Tulsa is offering this workshop to members and non-members alike.
Members: $59 | Non-Members: $99 | Student Discount: $55
The registration fee includes continental breakfast, lunch, snacks and parking in the Bank of America building’s parking garage (enter from Boulder Ave.).

The IABC Bronze Quill Awards recognize outstanding employee communications, public relations, media relations, community relations, government affairs and marketing communication efforts. The Tulsa Chapter of the International Association of Business Communicators’ Bronze Quill Awards is open to all communicators – members and non-members alike – in the corporate, nonprofit, advertising, marketing and government sectors.
All entries must be submitted though the online judging system at www.awardsentry.org/tulsa. See the categories and judging criteria.
Deadline for entries:
Early Deadline: Wed., Sept. 4
Final Deadline: Wed., Sept. 11
Awards celebration: Thurs., Oct. 10
Entries will be judged based upon stated criteria and the Work Plan provided to the judges. A select panel of communications professionals from IABC chapters in other states will judge all entries.
In conjunction with the Bronze Quill Awards, IABC Tulsa is also seeking nominations for two important individual awards:
- Communicator of the Year: Honors a member of the community for his or her contributions to the community through communications. This person is not a communicator by profession — but by passion. Previous recipients include former TU coach Bill Self; former Tulsa mayor Susan Savage; former Williams CEO Keith Bailey; Tulsa Community College President Tom McKeon; Pierce Norton, ONEOK; and Nancy Day, executive director of the Oklahoma Center for Community and Justice (OCCJ).
- Professional of the Year: Recognizes the outstanding achievements of an IABC member in his or her career, profession and community. Past recipients include Russ Florence, Kerry Malone, Kim MacLeod, Susie Wellendorf, Ginger Homan, ABC, Tom Droege and others.
- Leon Bolen Chapter Service Award: Formerly the President’s Award, the award is selected by the chapter president and given to the IABC Tulsa member who has contributed/volunteered the most to the chapter over the past year.
To nominate an individual for one of these awards, contact Megan Lewis at email@example.com or 918-561-5325.
We will also present a Best of Show Award to recognize the entry judged to be the most effective and creative in achieving its goals.
