IABC Golden Horseshoe Announces 2019 AGM

The IABC Golden Horseshoe is thrilled to announce our 2019 AGM at the Royal Hamilton Yacht Club on May 22, 2019. Festivities begin at 5:30pm.

This year’s speaker is Jodie Sales. Jodie is a senior public relations professional with extensive experience in the public sector and with highly-regulated industries.

She began her public relations career as spokesperson for the Bank of Canada on issues related to banknotes and counterfeiting and was part of the team that transitioned Canadian currency from paper to polymer.

Since then, Jodie has worked with different levels of government and other highly-regulated institutions and has earned her APR and Masters in Public Administration from Western University.

Jodie is currently the Director of Corporate Communications and Government Relations for one of Canada’s fastest-growing communities, the Town of Milton. In Milton, she has been the architect of a campaign to redefine the community as A Place of Possibility, highlighting the young, dynamic and highly-educated people that live and work in Milton.

As a successful public relations practitioner, Jodie is passionate about data-driving decision making and values evaluation and measurement in communications.
