*** From Dee Ellison:

Ned — Happy Thanksgiving to you. Among many other things, I'm thankful for you and for JOTW.

I can't even imagine how many hours you've put into JOTW since your system crashed — what a nightmare! In fact, I can't imagine how many hours you put into JOTW each week. You show amazing devotion and provide a huge contribution to our field.

I'm astounded at some of the complaints you've received in the survey. How tough and/or time consuming is it to write down a few numbers and use the “find” option to scroll down! We're all professionals, or supposedly so. Let some of these complainers try to make this happen for just one week, much less week after week, and they will see how much it takes to put it together.

At any rate, I think JOTW is perfect and thank you for providing it for all of us!!!!! Dee

*** More Prizes… from Carla Lochiatto:

Ned,

A friend of mine wrote a book, and I still have a few copies. I'd love to give you one as a prize, but not sure how it would go over in this group. It's called “Recovering Sorority Girl's Guide to a Year's Worth of Perfect Parties.” You can see it on Amazon here: http://www.amazon.com/Recovering-Sorority-Girls-Perfect-Parties/dp/0740750402/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1195158708&sr=8-1

If you'd like that as one of the prizes, let me know. It's a great snarky fun and useful read. Not on my work bookshelf, but definitely on my shelf at home! I want to help out and thought this might be unique…

-Carla

*** More feedback:

* Have been a member of the JOTW community since its earliest days when Ned solicited membership from his Navy PAO colleagues. At times, when I was happily employed (and not in a position to submit opportunities), it was the camaradarie and Ned's musings that kept me involved. At times, I relied on the contacts for my own job needs. Whenever possible, I supplied listings. And when given the chance to “sing” Ned's praises, I eagerly helped promote JOTW. Now, in semi-retirement, JOTW does not fill an immediate job hunting need, but it inspires me to seek opportunities to help others in their pursuits.

* This is one of the most valuable — and simultaneously entertaining — career resources in my arsenal! I rely on JOTW to keep up with trends in hiring needs and opportunities as well as a weekly jolt of humor and provocative thought. Ned, you're onto something great here, but I'm sure you already realized that!

* I've told you before, Ned, but I'll say it again: JOTW rocks. You've consistently provided a top-notch newsletter that has remained true to its mission and its readers. And you have yet to jump the shark, which seems rare in this day and age of “improving” everything to death. Bravo!

* I would like to see some information about starting off in the communications field and advice/tips on advancing my career.

I love JOTW … loyal member & contribute when I can … Thanks for everything, Ned. You'll get a t-shirt from my next employer, just as you have from the last 3 … MCI/Worldcom, GE Energy, and Home Depot. Who knows what you'll be wearing next?

I don't know SGM Steve Valley but his “donation” message was in poor taste and at best, inappropriate. I'm surprised his entry was even included in your message, the same week as Veterans Day, as it is incredibly disrespectful to the men and women serving our country, especially the families of those who made the ultimate sacrifice.

*** Reply:

Ned:

As a decorated war veteran (Bronze Star Medal and Combat Action Badge) whose lost several close friends defending our freedom in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom I did not think I was insulting my fellow veterans with my response. Maybe Ms. Hucul is interested in enlisting in the military so she too can feel the pride and honor of defending the right the citizens of the greatest country in the world the freedom of speech that allows her to make such ludicrous statements. Until then I don't need anyone to tell me what is uncalled for concerning enlisting in the US Army or any of our services.

Please feel free to pass my remarks to Ms. Hucul and please remind her that she sleeps safely in her bed at night because Soldiers like me are ready to visit violence on those who wish to do her harm.

*** 2008 Excellence in Communication Leadership (EXCEL) Award

Nomination deadline: 11 January 2008

The Excellence in Communication Leadership (EXCEL) Award, one of the highest honors IABC can bestow, recognizes a person who is not an IABC member but exhibits leadership in fostering excellent communication. Your help is needed to identify candidates for this prestigious award.

EXCEL winners consistently demonstrate vision and leadership in their commitment to effective business communication. This international award is often given to a chief executive officer (CEO), managing director or president. Consider some of our past winners:

Stu Reed, executive vice president of Motorola Inc., Integrated Supply Chain, who has made a commitment to straight talk, and seems to live and breathe communication. He personally supports his team’s communication program, which covers all Integrated Supply Chain stakeholders. His communications have a diverse, global reach that includes China and India.

Rajesh Subramaniam, president of FedEx Canada, who makes communication a key component of his business decision-making and understands the value and importance of strategic communication in achieving business success.

Edward (Ned) Barnholt, chairman, president and CEO of Agilent Technologies Inc., whose straightforward, easy communication style made it possible for his company to be listed as one of Fortune magazine’s “Most Admired Companies” in 2002, even though Agilent implemented substantial layoffs that year.

Richard Schulze, founder, chairman and CEO of Best Buy Co. Inc., who increased shareholder value through communication.

Through their actions and examples, these and other EXCEL winners have supported the communication profession and those who practice it.

Now I’m inviting you to submit your nomination(s) for the 2008 EXCEL Award. As an international organization, IABC seeks a diverse pool of highly qualified candidates who represent the international business community. There are no restrictions based on size of organization or budget. Because EXCEL is one of our profession's preeminent awards, the award recipient must accept the award in person at the IABC International conference in New York City on 23 June 2008.

You do not have to be a member of IABC to submit a nomination and you may submit more than one nomination. In addition, more than one person may nominate the same candidate. Separate nomination forms and documentation are required for each nominee.

Below is a brief outline of the EXCEL program and criteria for judging, and the nomination form. Required documentation is outlined on the nomination form. All completed nominations should be sent to IABC c/o EXCEL Award Nomination, One Hallidie Plaza, Suite 600, San Francisco, CA, 94102, USA by 11 January 2008. Incomplete and/or late submissions will not be considered.

Help to honor organizational leaders who are champions of outstanding business communication by nominating your candidates for IABC's 2008 EXCEL Award.

Sincerely,

Jay Coleman, ABC

2008 EXCEL Award Chair

Award description

The IABC EXCEL Award recognizes contributions to business communication by an organizational leader who is not a member of the International Association of Business Communicators (IABC). These contributions include initiating, directing, supporting or sustaining outstanding and effective communication programs. One award is presented each year, provided a suitable candidate has been identified and nominated by an IABC member or non-member and approved by a majority vote by IABC’s executive board.

Criteria for judging

EXCEL nominees will be evaluated on the following points:

Skills: Demonstration of exceptional leadership, management and communication skills.

Communicating with diverse audiences. Some experience in communicating with international or multi-cultural audiences is preferred.

Strategy: Use of a communication strategy that demonstrates creativity and innovation and that contributes to the business success of the organization.

Commitment to communication: Commitment to the communication programs for all of the organization’s audiences—both internal and external, and at local, national and international levels

Personal communication: Effective personal communication with all these audiences; Candidates must be shown to have participated in communication, not simply to have directed the communication staff in their efforts.

Ethics and professionalism in communication: Commitment to the highest ethical and professional standards. Please provide three brief examples of how your executive exhibited authenticity and/or faced up to an ethical dilemma by acting in an ethical manner.

Official nomination form to be included with the supporting information and documentation listed on the nomination form.

Because EXCEL is one of our profession’s preeminent awards, the award recipient must accept the award in person at the IABC International Conference in New York City on 23 June 2008.

For more information, contact service_centre@iabc.com .

The deadline for receipt of nominations is 11 January 2008.

Incomplete and/or late submissions will not be considered.

*** Between a rock and a hard drive:

Fabulous alternative selection this week, Ned! Hope you've made a maximum recovery from your hard drive failure.

I can only imagine what it takes to “analyze returned products that involve customer complaints” Or just what sort of problems prompt customers to complain enough to return a perishable item like a donut. I suppose it's the bakery version of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation.

Speaking of perishable (NOT!) – I have, at home in a Rubbermaid container, a small muffin, blueberry I think, from a US Air (now Airways) flight from ABE to DCA about 10 years ago – it shows no sign of degradation, mold, etc. Who knows what the bakery used to “extend shelf life.” I think of it as the baked goods version of Lenin's Tomb in Red Square. No, I'm not willing see if it's still edible…I think it passed that point possibly the day the plane was provisioned.

(No, latest attempt was negative. After running some fancy program for nine hours it said it had 99 hours to go. My friend needed his laptop back. So, I'll try one more time. Replacement hard drive has arrived.

You’d be hard pressed to get a free muffin on USAirways today.

However, I'm flying USAirways to Lihue on Dec 15 and I get there with just one stop, so times have changed.

In the meantime I'm using Laura's PC.)

(Ned's followup: New hard drive installed. Data on old hard drive unrecovereable. It was not because I didn't try.)

*** Ned’s hard drive:

The hard drive was wiped following a head crash. I was unable to recover any data.

*** From Greg Brooks:

Ned,

Been there, done that, unfortunately. One recommendation now, and one that will help you in the future:

* If you reallllllly need the data on the dead drive, run (do not walk!) to Drive Savers. They've recovered 100% of the data from dead drives for me before — even when there was ample physical damage to the drive. The bad news is, they're not cheap (I spent $2,300 with them on one hairy recovery!). The good news: They get the job done.

* Once you're back up and running, look into a subscription to Mozy

(mozy.com). It's an online back-up service that, for less than $5 a month, does incremental, online backups of your files. Not only does this get rid of the lost-data issue, but if you happen to find yourself somewhere without your computer but *with* a need for your data, you can retrieve files via the web.

Good luck with the recovery process!

Greg Brooks

*** Bummed Out:

This topic might be broached, Ned. Being “bummed out” or depressed in one's job search is certainly real. I may not love my current gig, but I have a gig and patience has its rewards and hope springs eternal.

It's probably too much of a downer for your Next Step venture. But it might be useful to to link to it on JOTW – it's bad enough to be “under-employed” or “between successes” period, from personal experience though it can be doubly worse. Maybe you could do it as a “who out there in JOTW land has hard-won personal advice for under-employed JOTWers to help them get through the holidays?”

Ciao for now,

MS

*** Heather has hang-ups:

Ned,

Continuing to have problems with viewing your site in Microsoft Explorer.

It seems to lock up during the loading process. Not having this problem with any other sites. I am trying to view the other classifieds and consider running one for my Nikon D100 camera, a lens and some accessories.

Also want to view Very Next Step.

Each time I load the page, same thing. It does not load properly…locks up and then I have to end an unresponsive program. Are others having this problem?

*** b j Altschul, APR:

Hi Ned,

I'm a classic case of converting a volunteer position into a staff position — at the Montgomery County Humane Society. My first assistant, of course, is my own dog! Seriously, we have a lot of creative projects in the works and are seeking an enthusiastic, energetic intern to help with our upcoming 50th Anniversary Year. Details below.

b j Altschul, APR

Montgomery County Humane Society

50th Anniversary Project Director

bja@mchumane.org

53.) Communications Intern — Academic Credit, Montgomery County Humane Society, Rockville, MD

BACKGROUND : The Montgomery County Humane Society is becoming a national leader in promoting responsible pet care through low-cost spay/neuter and increasing the adoption rate of homeless companion animals in our care – 92% and rising! We've recently been in the news as one of the lead East Coast shelters that rescued dogs from a large unlicensed breeder in Hillsville, VA, that was investigated and exposed by The Humane Society of the United States. Throughout 2008 we will be celebrating our 50th Anniversary with an array of print and online publications and special events.

ASSIGNMENTS : One of the major communication pieces we will produce is a special commemorative history. This will trace the story of MCHS – where we've been and where we are going; interviews with people who have been involved with the organization for many years, profiles by and about the people who have adopted pets from the county shelter, and related content. Targeted readers include donors, members, volunteers, adopters, County government, veterinarians, animal care businesses and organizations, and others interested in animal welfare.

You'll have an opportunity to research, write and edit some of the articles for the commemorative publication , as well as pieces for our regular quarterly magazine, website, and email newsletter. You also may assist with conducting qualitative and quantitative research for the anniversary, attend selected volunteer/committee planning meetings, and organize content for social media such as a blog and MySpace. One of your routine assignments may be to select, photograph, and write descriptions of animals available for adoption and submit this information weekly to local media.

DESIRED QUALIFICATIONS : To help research, write, publish and promote the commemorative history – a key part of our strategic organizational communication – we're looking for a senior with coursework in Communication or Public Relations, ideally supplemented with Writing, Research, English, Business, and/or Social Media. You should have an interest in or willingness to learn about nonprofit organizations, animal care, and fund-raising. You'll need solid historical research skills – using resources such as the Internet, Lexis-Nexis, ProQuest, and media archives. Knowledge of research methods is helpful. Access to a public relations database through your university, such as Vocus or Cision, is helpful but not required. You also will need the ability to conduct, record and transcribe journalistic style interviews. You should enjoy multi-tasking and trying out new techniques.

COMPENSATION : This is an unpaid internship (15 hours/week) for academic credit. We are an established, growing nonprofit – small enough that a creative intern's contributions can make a large and genuine difference. If you're on your toes, you'll end up with a deeper understanding of public relations and several additions for your portfolio.

LOCATION : The Montgomery County Humane Society is located at 14645 Rothgeb Dr., Rockville (just off E. Gude). Although our location is not Metro-accessible, Ride-On buses #59 (Montgomery Village Mall & Rockville Metro Station), & 48 (Wheaton Metro & Rockville Metro) serve the immediate area, and we offer free parking.

HOW TO APPLY : Submit resume, writing sample and cover letter to b j Altschul, APR, at bja@mchumane.org . For consideration for the Spring '08 semester please apply by December 21. Questions? Call 240/773-5967. See website for more information about MCHS: mchumane.org .

61.) Vice President, Marketing and Corporate Communications, St. Luke's Episcopal Health System, Houston, TX

Our Client

St. Luke’s Episcopal Health System (SLEHS) (www.sleh.org) has been providing compassionate healthcare to Houstonians for almost five decades from its location in the heart of the Texas Medical Center. Founded in 1954 by the Episcopal Diocese of Texas, today St. Luke's Episcopal Hospital delivers primary and tertiary healthcare to patients from throughout the Houston metropolitan area and from around the world. St. Luke’s Episcopal Health System has been recognized by Houston Business Journal as a top-10 healthcare employer in Houston for five consecutive years. The system is composed of: St. Luke’s Episcopal Hospital in the Texas Medical Center (SLEH), St. Luke’s Episcopal Health Charities, St. Luke’s Community Medical Center–The Woodlands and Kelsey-Seybold Management, LLP. St. Luke's Episcopal Health System has a unique commitment to patient care. As a faith-based, non-profit organization, St. Luke's believes that true healing involves the body, mind and spirit. The approach goes beyond religion, focusing on the healing aspects of spirituality and based on deeply held trust, love, caring, compassion, and respect for well-being and life.

The hospital’s original charter for a 180-bed nonprofit general hospital was secured in 1945. During the planning stages for St. Luke’s and Texas Children’s Hospital, which opened the same year, board members agreed to build adjacent facilities, establish shared administrations and maintain separate boards. An additional affiliation was added in 1962 with the chartering of Texas Heart Institute (THI). To date, St. Luke’s and the Texas Heart Institute have performed more than 100,000 open heart procedures, more than 200,000 cardiac catheterizations, and more than 25,000 cardiology interventions as an alternative to bypass surgery. In 1971, a 26-story patient tower was constructed, and in 1990, St. Luke’s Medical Tower (now known as The O'Quinn Medical Tower at St. Luke's) opened, earning the distinction of being the icon most associated with the Texas Medical Center.

In February 1997, the Episcopal Diocese of Texas established St. Luke’s Episcopal Health System, a Texas non-profit corporation. This reorganization expanded the healing ministry of the Diocese through the creation of St. Luke’s Episcopal Health Charities (SLEHC). A grant-making public charity, SLEHC acts as a partner with St. Luke’s as it fulfills its charity care obligations and faith-based mission. According to the executive director of the SLEHC, Gail Bray, PhD, as of early 2007, SLEHC had awarded more than $41 million to non-profit organizations throughout the Diocese.

Through its relationships with Baylor College of Medicine and The University of Texas Medical School at Houston, St. Luke’s participates in the training of residents rotating through the hospital. Approximately 60% of the 600+ members of St. Luke’s active medical staff have teaching appointments at one of these two medical schools. In Spring 2001, St. Luke’s was designated a Magnet Hospital for Nursing Excellence, the first Texas hospital to receive such recognition from the American Nurses Credentialing Center, a subsidiary of the American Academy of Nursing. In February 2002, 2004 and 2005, St. Luke’s was named to FORTUNE Magazine’s list of “100 Best Companies to Work For.” In 2002, St. Luke’s Episcopal Health System finalized the purchase of the KS Management Services, L.L.P., officially joining St. Luke’s with Houston’s largest community-based multi-specialty physician group. Kelsey-Seybold is a multi-specialty healthcare provider dedicated to delivering the most advanced level of comprehensive care, utilizing state-of-the-art technology and extensive clinical research to design new ways of providing care.

St. Luke's Diagnostic & Treatment Center – Kirby Glen, which opened in early 2003, offers St. Luke's excellence and free parking in a convenient location. Kirby Glen includes radiology, cancer treatment facilities, lung therapy, sleep apnea diagnostics, and travel medicine. Also this year, St. Luke’s Community Medical Center-The Woodlands opened as part of St. Luke's Community Health Services, a component of St. Luke’s Episcopal Health System. The Woodlands' newest hospital provides the compassionate care people have come to expect from St. Luke's. The staff delivers this care in state-of-the-art facilities that include an emergency department, newborn and infant nurseries, diagnostic imaging services, labor and delivery rooms, family lounges on each floor, and more.

In April 2004, Baylor College of Medicine and St. Luke’s Episcopal Health System entered into a new affiliation agreement that significantly expanded St. Luke’s relationship as Baylor’s private adult affiliated teaching hospital. While Baylor and St. Luke’s have been affiliated for many years, the new affiliation agreement resulted in a strengthening of their shared programs to forge a new model for healthcare delivery.

The people who work at St. Luke's are dedicated to excellence and compassion in caring for the whole person — mind, body, and spirit. The highly skilled medical professionals understand the importance of delivering world class care with a human touch; they believe in collaborating in a spirit of teamwork as they strive to help all individuals reach their optimum health. The mission of St. Luke's Episcopal Health System is to enhance community health by delivering superior value in high-quality, cost-effective acute care.
