What Eric is saying about IABC: "IABC has proven to be as great of a tool as I anticipated. I have made great connections with professionals, and have gained extensive and seemingly boundless knowledge from being part of the organization. At the CCSU IABC chapter I have built great friendships with some awesome motivated people, and look forward to serving the chapter to the best of my ability. I am committed to carrying on the extraordinary legacy that Amanda Schultz and Jana Baseel, our past two presidents, have created for our program.
