Hello SoCal Jivers!


I wanted to let you all know that next week, IABC/LA is hosting a networking event for both members and non-members entitled "Bridging the Gap Between IT and Communications."

Every company has its challenges when it comes to working with IT — getting the solutions you need put in place to achieve your business objectives is rarely an easy task.

Understanding the critical role that IT plays within your organization is key to understanding how to work with IT effectively and get to "yes."


Alan Lewis from Paladin Group, formerly JCS Consulting will lead this discussion and provide valuable insight and IT-friendly strategies. Event details are available on the event registration page linked below.


Event Details:

  • When: Wednesday, April 30, 2014, 6:30pm - 9:00pm
  • Where: Tin Roof Bistro, Manhattan Beach
  • Cost: $25 Members / $35 Non-Members




We hope to see you there - leave a comment below if you plan on attending!
