Dear PRSSA members,
Hello! Hope all of you are having a fantastic weekend.
The meeting went very well, and more people came out than expected so a word of thanks for that! Elias Buchwald, former president of the New York Chapter and co-founder of Burson-Marsteller, gave a captivating speech, brief and to the point, as did our professional advisor, Jeremy Bridgman. They introduced the world of public relations to us amateurs and briefly touched on the different paths of PR – working in a PR agency or being the PR person in a company.
Shortly after, our President Doreen Naor, introduced PRSSA as a network of student professionals interested in Public Relations, including what we hope to accomplish. Our Vice President, Stephanie Dressler, discussed upcoming events and Ben Spalding, our Treasurer, discussed possibilities in fundraising for these events. Gotta raise money! Our secretary, Cara McMahon, touched upon the different
committees within PRSSA so that every member can have an opportunity to be a leader.After all, what’s the point in being in a club if one cannot partake in its activities? So many people signed up, and now we have members in each committee!
Lastly, our PR Director, Shira Palka, and I (Historian) introduced to the rest of the members our Twitter, WordPress, and Facebook (NYU Prssa) pages. So follow us! Valentine’s Day is approaching and we hope our events committee will be able to fundraise during the love holiday. For all the singles, this is for you. We’re hoping to promote “single-ness.”
We’ll keep you updated so check on our wordpress often!
Until then,Your Historian,Claire Ahn, on behalf of the entire Executive Board
