Dear Members:

Happy February! January was a warm month but we seem to be paying for it now with all the snow.

We had a wonderful February event, focused on finding a job in the PR field. Thank you so much to our panelists, Jaime Laufer, senior recruiting manager for The McIntyre Group and Mary Beth Schroeder, senior director talent development and internal communications, from the Affinion Group.

On March 11, we will be hosting a peer group for solo practitioners and small agency owners. Louise Stix will discuss proposals to win clients.

We would like to welcome a new board member, John Puskar, VP, ABC Campaign for Frontier Communications. He will be our new Secretary. If you are interested in serving on the board or volunteering, please contact me at (203) 493-1490 or by email at

We have a member teaching graduate classes at Pace University and Iona College. He is looking for guest speakers covering media relations, IMC and/or social media initiatives. Most lectures have focused on successful campaigns but he is just as interested in hearing about initiatives that fell short. For more information, contact Mark Bruce, (203) 912-4828 (

We hope you have a wonderful February. If there is anything we can do to help, please feel free to reach out to me at the number above.

Best Wishes,


Best wishes,
Anne Young Albanese
