On June 20th, 2014 more than 80 senior communicators from 15 countries gathered in Hong Kong at the HSBC headquarters to launch the APACD, the first international network for in-house communication professional across the Asia-Pacific region. The launch event provided a lively start to our new association, with engaging discussions and support for this pan-Asian network.
We were able to capture some nice photos from the event which I invite you to view at: http://www.apacd.com/foundation-meeting
This truly is an exciting time for the communication profession in Asia-Pacific and we would be delighted if you would join us on this endeavor as a member of the APACD. Please visit our website www.apacd.com which shares our latest updates, introduces to you our executive committee and outlines our next steps.
The APACD is planning some exciting and engaging initiatives. To have a strong and solid basis, we are currently building our country networks. By hosting debates, presentations and discussions on the latest trends and concerns in PR and corporate communications, we aim to gather and share the accumulated knowledge of our members and peers and to grow a strong network. Our think tanks, the APACD Working Groups, will offer further important platforms for expertise and thorough peer-exchange. Working Groups will either explore specific concerns or areas of interest, or discuss the common communication challenges faced by a given industry. Moreover, the APACD publishes Communication Director magazine, a leading resource for information and analysis on corporate communications and PR, and provides members with practical service brochures that will offer expertise and solutions to a wide variety of concerns in today’s world of PR.
To stay up-to-date with our association, I invite you to follow us on LinkedIn: http://linkd.in/1kmlrc6
