IAIABC Membership and Communications Manager

The International Association of Industrial Accident Boards and Commissions (IAIABC) is hiring for a Membership and Communications Manager. Yes, you read that right – the IAIABC (we’ve been around since 1914, things were different then).

What is the role?

The Membership and Communications Manager will lead the IAIABC’s member recruitment, retention, and engagement efforts. They will develop and execute marketing strategies and tactics to communicate about the IAIABC’s services. They will also create content that either repurposes IAIABC resources or shares new insights into the IAIABC’s value proposition.

What is the IAIABC?

The IAIABC is a trade association for jurisdictional agencies and private sector organizations involved in workers’ compensation regulation and service delivery. Don’t know anything about workers’ compensation? That’s OK! You just need to know about marketing, connecting with members, and creating content.

Who will you be working with?

The IAIABC staff is small but mighty, and truly embodies the spirit of working hard and playing hard. We enjoy what we do and enjoy doing it together. IAIABC staff are currently all working remotely from the headquarters office in Middleton, Wisconsin. Several staff members are full-time remote employees, and this is an option for the Marketing and Communications Manager given the right circumstances.
