*** One Paragraph Pitch:

What's missing from your Communications and/or Public Relations team? Marina Mathews!

Marina has her B.A. degree in Communication Arts from Concord College in Athens, WV and has progressively built her communications, media, public relations, marketing and web experience through her role in corporate communications teams as a PR Manager, Staff writer and most recently the Senior Marketing Manager at 1-800-PACK-RAT, LLC. She has excellent writing skills and spent seven years at The Herald-Dispatch in Huntington, W.VA. Marina has consistently assumed a leadership role in every position she has held. At GEICO she introduced a popular news feature to the company's intranet site, which remains the most popular news item of associates. She orchestrated a redesign of the corporate newsletter — adding color, more photos, and “news you can use” stories — to the delight of associates. At Coldwell Banker, where she was the regional public relations manager for DC/MD/VA, Marina spear-headed the roll out of the company's first-ever intranet site and maintained the site's content as the editor. She also created a style guide for all web content. At 1-800-PACK-RAT, she was instrumental in identifying key partners for an affinity marketing program and implemented a highly touted e-mail campaign which got the attention of management and key stakeholders due to its sales success and low investment of company dollars. She implemented a GIS (geographic information system) that targeted sales territories and supported the expansion of the 1-800-PACK-RAT,LLC footprint across the US.

Marina is results-driven, creative, even-keeled, a highly functioning multi-tasker and is willing to roll up her sleeves to get the work done needed to meet your company's objectives. If you (or someone you know) have an Communications and/or Public Relations opening at your company, please contact Marina at (240) 277-3803 or marhwv@aol.com.

.*** Dean Kaupe:

My friend and shipmate Dean Kaupe passed away last week after being unable to recover from a serious infection. He never fully recovered from cancer and his treatment weakened his immune system.

Dean was the editor of the Signature, the award-winning Navy newspaper

at NAS Sigonella, where I had the pleasure of working with him. He

served at sea (on a cruiser I believe), and on recruiting duty. He was

part of the PA team at the Naval Station at Staten Island and served

with the Seabees at Gulfport.

He was one of the funniest individuals I knew, and between the two of us

we were too comical for our own good. I’ve worked with a lot of editors, and in a job field where clever is good, Dean was the cleverest of them al.

*** Population Media Center Media Resource Center in Ethiopia

The Job of the Week (JOTW) network continues its noble effort to

obtain communication resources (books, manuals, CDs, DVDs), to expand

the materials available at the Population Media Center Media Resource Center

in Ethiopia. This resource center is open to any professional

communicators in Ethiopia, and so would be serving the general business

community in Addis Ababa. According to Dr. Negussie Teffera, PMC’s director in Addis Ababa, the books received so far are being put to productive use. I asked him if he needed more? His reply:

Yes, we very much need more books and related materials on media and communications. The books we received so far are very useful and excellent for teaching

purposes. We are using them a lot in our media and communication training

workshops. Your support in this is greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Regards,

Negussie

So, I urge you to continue to send materials. Here’s how:

*** Wounded Warrior Project:

JOTW and the Surface Navy Association embarked on a drive to raise $30,000 for Operation Second Chance to purchase a customized van made accessible for wheelchairs. Thanks in part to the generosity of people in this network, we succeeded, and OSC has taken delivery. In fact, another JOTW networker, Mark Oswell, in arranging to host wounded warriors for a Super Bowl Party connected with Cindy McGrew at OSC (http://www.operationsecondchance.org/) and assistance was provided in a Super way.

You can still donate. All funds collected now will pay for registration, insurance, gas and maintenance. Visit https://www.navysna.org/Events/OperationSecondChance.asp to report your contribution will then be made directly to Operation Second Chance.

*** Rock ‘n roll trivia:

These soulful Rock and Roll Hall-of-Famers could be called Moore and Prater. This group opened for the Clash during their 1979 tour, but has smash singles and Gold LPs in the 60s.. Very tight musically, and closely choreographed, but they didn't get along personally and would go years without saying a word to each other offstage.

(Answer? The answer is posted now on the JOTW webpage. Visit www.nedsjotw.com. Read previous questions and answers at http://www.nedsjotw.com/blog/JOTWRocknRollTriviaQuiz.)

*** From Trace Ulland:

Ned, I was told you do a weekly job posting newsletter for IABC. I’m hoping you can post a job opening for me.

I work at Target in Minneapolis, but one of my business partners just joined the board of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. They currently have a VP of PR position open, and he asked for our assistance in getting the word out about the position. It’s based in the DC area, but unfortunately, I don’t have a lot of contacts in that part of the U.S.

I’ve already passed the job information on to my IABC colleagues here in Minneapolis who have contacts in DC. And I’ve recommended that the NCMEC also post this on the IABC Web site. If you can post this in your newsletter, that would be great.
