IABC Houston's Austin Staton on stepping up and their FREE COVID-19 Crisis Webinar - Ep. 219

Welcome to episode 219 of the IABC International Podcast. Austin Staton, President of IABC Houston, and host of The Business Communicators podcast joins Dan Gold to speak about new resources for members during the global pandemic. One key part of this is a standout panel discussion produced by the chapter. Available here:

==== The Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) has disrupted the global markets and the pandemic is now impacting many within our own community. Schools have closed, local businesses have shuttered, and many are unsure of the long-term implications to their careers and personal health. In this time of uncertainty, how can we navigate the COVID-19 crisis as communicators? Join IABC Houston and our panel of experts for an informative discussion on crisis management during the COVID-19 pandemic. Our panel will share insights into their corporate response, working remotely, and the importance of maintaining a focus on mental health. Panelists: Judge Ed Emmett; Clint Woods; Dr. Chris Yandle For more information, please visit" ==== 

They also discuss how IABC Houston has embraced live streaming alongside their already successful chapter podcast. In addition to the webinar, the chapter has dedicated resources to help their members who have lost their jobs, and to support contractors as work has become harder to come by. 

IABC Houston is the IABC International Chapter of the Year. Whilst we're highlighting one chapter in this episode, we want you to know that all of the IABC Chapters and Regions have been doing essential work for our members, communities and the wider world. Thank you to each and every one of you.
