New School Year Begins, Central Ohio PRSSA Chapters’ Leaders Rally

John Palmer

The PRSA Central Ohio Chapter sponsors seven PRSSA Chapters – Capital University, Marietta College, Ohio Dominican University, Ohio Northern University, Ohio University, Otterbein University, and The Ohio State University. Sponsoring these chapters is a great opportunity for PRSA members to connect with students and help with their transition to the workforce. The PRSSA Liaison Committee serves to connect the professional society with PRSSA providing professional development, internship and mentoring opportunities, offering assistance with PRSA associate membership, and assisting in the planning and execution of the annual PRSSA Central Ohio PaRtners Conference.

On September 10, the PRSSA leaders of those chapters convened in Columbus for a beneficial program of learning and networking. The energy and enthusiasm demonstrated from the attendees was extraordinary as they are all preparing programs, recruiting members, and more. More than 30 students were in attendance including faculty and professional advisors. The faculty advisors in attendance were Lois Foreman-Wernet, Ph.D., APR (Capital), Natalie Kompa, MBA, APR (Ohio Dominican), Alisa Agozzino, Ph.D., APR, (Ohio Northern), Mary Sterenberg (Ohio State), and Alyson Moses (Ohio State).

The Liaison Committee’s PRSSA Professional Advisers for 2014-2015 include:

  • Capital University – Kelsey Kimmelman, John Palmer
  • Marietta College – Jenn Cartmille, Taylor Gaspar, Rebecca Oleksa
  • Ohio Dominican University – Erin Maggied, Steven Nyeste
  • Ohio Northern University – Brandi Neloms, Charli Joy
  • Ohio University – Heather Bartman, Rebecca Oleksa, Renea Morris, Zach Wright
  • Otterbein University – Lindsey Hobbs
  • The Ohio State University – Dan Orzano, Jenn Cartmille, Laura Jackson, Denise Clark

A great opportunity for professionals to connect with PRSSA members is the 2015 Match Day program. Match Day gives PRSSA students the opportunity to gain insight into the real-world of public relations. Students are paired with a professional whom they shadow either in the morning or the afternoon and with whom they join at the Past Presidents’ luncheon in February 2015. To learn more about this effort and to become a mentor, visit the Central Ohio Chapter’s website.
