Jhb invitePlease join us for an update on our work to create a credible, growing skills base for our industry.  The IAB SA is in the process of  facilitating the development of a Professional Body, which will allow recognition and standardisation of digital skills profiles and designations in the digital industry.

We know that our members, and the broader publishing, marketing, advertising and communications industries need credible, reliable digitally skilled individuals, and we want to enable them to confidently choose to employ professionals who are accountable to a Professional Body for their guaranteed competence and ethics.

The Durban update will be on the 5th July, venue and times will be communicated in due course.
