Interface Consulting sponsored the July 24, 2008, International Association of Business Communicators (IABC) luncheon. Several of the firm’s consultants are members of the organization, including Steve Parker, who introduced keynote speaker Houston Mayor Bill White at the event.

Mayor White shared his insight into the challenges of communicating to 2.4 million Houstonians in a way that is relevant to each of them. He discussed internal communications dealing with city government, his accomplishments while serving as mayor, and his current programs for the city and then concluded with a question and answer session.

The mayor also educated the group on one of the city’s newest technology communication avenues, CitizensNet, which gives Houston Citizens the ability to target messages to citizens block by block. The program already has over 56,000 subscribers.

IABC is an organization offering professional development and networking opportunities to industry professionals. For more information, please visit
