Veteran communicator/editor Joe Lieblang is known for his excellent judgment. However, on one key point, he was clearly wrong: He didn’t think he was worthy to be selected as IABC Detroit’s 2017 Communicator of the Year.
Joe’s communications excellence and giving spirit were recognized Oct. 4, 2017, at the annual IABC Detroit Renaissance Awards. He is the organization’s 29th Communicator of the Year.
Joe has been an IABC Detroit member for 36 years. He retired earlier this year after 33 years in various communications roles at Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan.
Many of Joe’s professional colleagues and fellow IABC members stepped forward to share their thoughts about his worthiness for the honor. Some are included in this video.
