Hi all,

The PRSSA is looking for potential executive board members for the 2012-2013 school year!

I highly encourage each of you to apply. I joined the PRSSA (Public Relations Student Society of America) last Spring, was elected to the executive board for this year, and have already gained so much experience in leadership, public relations, event planning, social marketing and more—all of which look great on a resume!


Many of the current executive board members graduate this year and now is the time to learn more about each. Attached is the list of all exec board positions (below this email), with the duties required and contact information of the current members. Please take the time to look over this list and apply for one (or more!) positions that seem interesting to you.


We are holding elections early so each of you has the opportunity to learn and understand your future duties, and shadow the current exec board member during the spring quarter. This will help prepare you all for next year!


In order to be considered for positions, elections will be held over email. You can apply and be considered for as many positions as you wish. Please send me (Samantha Eisen: an email with the following information:

•             Name

•             Year

•             Major/Minor

•             Positions of interest

•             For each position of interest, please provide a short paragraph regarding why you feel this position is well suited for you.


Elections are open until Wednesday, March 21st at 6pm. Please make sure to email me with all of the appropriate information by this time in order to be considered for the executive board.


Please let me know if you have any questions and good luck with the rest of the quarter!
