New PRSSA chapter
coming together at Elon


The adviser for Elon University's new Public Relations Student Society of America, Dr. Jessica Gisclair, will host an informational meeting at 4 p.m. Oct. 7 in McEwen 210. The purpose of PRSSA is to cultivate a favorable relationship between students and professional public relations practitioners. The group has more than 7,000 members in 227 chapters on college campuses across the United States. Leaders who are working to establish the Elon chapter expect the group to serve its members by enhancing their knowledge of public relations and providing access to professional development opportunities.

Members will get the opportunity to participate in professional and leadership development workshops and conferences. In addition, each year PRSSA and its sponsors award nearly $20,000 in scholarships.

Membership in the new group is open to all Elon University students. National membership dues are $41 annually, and the dues must be paid by Nov. 1.
