PRSSA Meeting 1
Welcome Back! Our First PRSSA Meeting with guest Mar Junge.
Hello PRSSA members!
The end of the semester is right around the corner! Before we step into our finals, we wanted to have a fundraising event at Flames Eatery & Bar, right across the street from campus! 15% of the money Flames accumulates on Thursday, December 6th from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., will go directly to PRSSA! Please bring all of your friends and family members to this event!
Also, this will be out last event of the semester. The money that we make at this fundraising event will help with future PRSSA events, agency day, and will help us with funding our promotions campaign next semester. We are all looking forward to this event! It is the perfect opportunity for everyone to really get to know one another and to start building friendships!
We also want to thank everyone for participating in what was a great semester for PRSSA. We have so much planned for next semester!
See you on Thursday!
This week we are going to have an SJSU PR alumni come in and inform us on how we can one day start our very own company. Rene was in our shoes not too long ago. Her success and accomplishments are endless!
“My passion is making magical connections. I combine my high-tech marketing experience with a knack for matching exceptional colleagues to client needs – resulting in amazing connections that otherwise would not have happened.”
“How did I get here? Twenty years of public relations and marketing communications experience in Silicon Valley, ranging from startups and agencies to Fortune 500 companies. In 1997, I founded High Tech Connect as a unique consulting partner for expert marketing and communications.”
