Call for Presenters

Back for IABC Minnesota’s ninth year, the day-long Convergence Summit is set for April 21, 2023. Planning is underway, and the committee is looking for presenters to help fill out the day.

The Convergence Summit brings together experts from both the business and academic realms to explore the changes and challenges convergence presents for business communicators. The sessions will explore cutting-edge theories alongside real-world case studies to help you learn how to build your organization’s reputation, connect with your audiences, and influence stakeholders in this ever-changing environment.

The theme “convergence” focuses on converging issues, trends, or emerging areas within the communication profession and communication research. Examples from last year involve the convergence of:

•    marketing and communication within organizational structure
•    social media marketing and consumer trust
•    brand alignment and corporate social responsibility

To submit your proposal to speak, please provide an up-to 500-word description of your presentation along with the three primary learning objectives. Deadline for proposals is Friday, March 10, 2023. Submissions and questions may be sent to

The Convergence Summit will be held at Prime Therapeutics offices in Eagan. Look for more information about the summit, including an early-bird registration offer in the coming weeks.
