PRSSA officers
introduced at social


The Elon chapter of the Public Relations Student Society of America hosted a meet-and-greet social in Studio B of the McEwen Communications building in December. The event offered Elon chapter members the opportunity to meet the elected executive board.

Jo Heather Layton, Public Relations Society of America Tar Heel Chapter president, was on hand to visit with members of the new PRSSA chapter. The Elon PRSSA's professional adviser from the Tar Heel Chapter is Holly Stewart, senior marketing communications manager for VF Corporation in Greensboro. She was unable to make it to the social due to prior commitments.

Members who attended the December event received their certificates and membership cards and information about scholarships and learned about opportunities to attend professional workshops in the future. The executive board also met for a few minutes after the social to appoint directors for chapter development, membership services and professional development.

"You're creating a legacy for others," said Jessica Gisclair, faculty adviser for PRSSA. "If you wish it, you can probably make it happen this year."

The next opportunity for PRSSA members to enhance their corporate careers is Feb. 6 at the Real World Public Relations 2004 Collegiate Conference in Atlanta, Ga. Activities include industry track seminars, informative workshops, a career expo and other professional-development opportunities.

Here is the complete list of Elon PRSSA officers and directors for 2003-2004:
