*** One Paragraph Pitch:

Hi, Ned —

Our paths crossed years ago in the IABC-DC chapter. Some years and

several jobs later, I have become a faithful reader. I connected with

Larry Light through the announcement you ran in early May for his

resume, cover letter and interview guides. He recast my resume and

coached me through some matters as I prepare for a career transition in

very soon — the coming days.

He urged me to contact you with a one-paragraph pitch, based on the

introductory highlight of my recasted resume. Well, here goes:

Communications director-level individual, capable of creating Web site

content or editing existing content to inform and motivate

stakeholders and members with fresh and relevant content, while

simultaneously managing an organization's print and electronic

communications and performing public affairs duties. Has managed staff

and contractors, including administrative and technical individuals.

Directed web content for world's largest medical technology association;

served in numerous media relations roles for the nation's largest

association of life insurance companies. Has had direct experience as a

reporter for newspapers including The Charlotte News, The Wall Street

Journal, American Metal Market, as well as freelance reporting/editing

experience with NPR, GEICO, and University of Maryland, and

Afro-American Newspapers (Washington, DC and Baltimore, MD). Works

consistently with internal and external departments. Saved an employer

thousands of dollars by moving hard-copy newsletters to electronic

publishing. Guided association's transition to online event marketing

that raised more than $3 million in non-dues revenue during a four-year

period. Multitasks well; can work with tight deadlines, limited budgets

and consistently brings projects in on time and within budget.

*** The JOTW 2009 Holiday Blessing

I have traditionally asked my friend, shipmate, and best man Pat Tracy

to offer a blessing each year around this time. I will do so again this

year. But some of you have indicated an interest in having a wider,

more ecumenical expression of faith and thankfulness. So, I am inviting

any and all of you to send me your own JOTW holiday blessing which I

will share with the entire JOTW Network. Send your blessing to

lundquist989@cs.com by 22 December.

Note: I've already received several blessings. I'm looking forward to

your contribution.

*** The JOTW 2010 Survey:

The next iteration of the JOTW Survey is in the planning stages now.

The previous two surveys yielded very valuable information about who

belongs to the JOTW network and about our profession as business

communicators. To make the survey fun, and to encourage participation,

we have offered some really great prizes that were awarded at random to

those who completed the survey.

So, with that in mind, I am inviting those who want to contribute a

prize or a service for the 2010 JOTW Survey to let me know before the

end of 2009. When you provide an incentive prize, you will be given

the name of the winner of that prize (drawn at random for the survey

participants) and you will deliver the prize or service directly to that

person. Do not send prizes to me here at the JOTW World Operations

Center.

Send your item and description to Ned at lundquist989@cs.com.

When you offer to give prize, you get a paragraph to describe the prize,

and yourself if you want, so you can write it off to promotional

considerations. The list of prizes will be maintained at

www.nedsjotw.com, posted in JOTW and in the JOTW Monday Morning Chasers,

and at the JOTW Facebook and LinkedIn group pages.

*** IABC/Washington January meeting: Looking Back, Looking Ahead

Looking Back, Looking Ahead

Jan 14, 2010 5:30-8:30 p.m.

Hamilton Crowne Plaza, Washington, DC

As we complete the first decade of the 21st century, communicators have

seen dramatic changes over the past few years.

We've just come out of a challenging year filled with uncertainty and

apprehension, the likes of which some of us have never seen before. We

saw record unemployment and a global economic meltdown that impacted our

field as much as any other. And we also saw the emergence and dominance

of social media and tools such as Facebook and Twitter that have turned

the communication profession on its head.

So what will 2010 bring? Can we expect any changes for communication

professionals in the National Capital area? What should we do to

increase business opportunities and employee morale for and in our

organizations? What are the communication trends we are likely to see in

this second decade of the new millennium? And how can we learn to

harness technology to work even better for our organizations, clients

and work?

While no one has a crystal ball, IABC/Washington is extremely pleased to

bring together some of the area's leading business communicators to

discuss these questions, as well as answer those you might have, at our

January chapter meeting.

Panelists include Shashi Bellamkonda, director of social media and

“social media swami” for Network Solutions; Torod Neptune, senior vice

president/Global Public Affairs practice leader and general manager of

Waggener Edstrom Worldwide's DC, office; John Taylor, senior manager of

public affairs at Sprint Nextel Corporation; and Paul Sherman,

co-founder and editor-in-chief of Tech Wire Publications.

Daria Steigman, former chapter president and founder of Steigman

Communications, will moderate what promises to be a lively discussion.

Bring your business cards, your questions, and yourself!

Also in 2010, we'll kick off the year with a new location and be making

our meetings increasingly mobile to serve more chapter members. So

please join us!

*** From Bonnie H. Schulte:

Good morning, Ned.

Because of a link to a letter

now certainly happier than ever

she dons new attire

working hard not to perspire

she's tickled clear down to her toes!

I'm thrilled to tell you, Ned, that I've landed at Central Pennsylvania

Youth Ballet (CPYB), Carlisle, PA, as Director of Strategic Marketing

and Communications.

In September I came upon CPYB's non-paid, social media internship JOTW

posting. As I had a goal to soak up like a sponge opportunities relating

to social media marketing, I made contact with the organization's PR

Director.

I shared that I'd recently moved to the area from out of state; had

extensive marketing experience, but was not a social media expert; and

was in a job search. I offered to come alongside CPYB on a pro bono

basis to assist in the development of a social media presence.

Suggesting this posed a win-win opportunity for both of us (CPYB

receives strategic and tactical marketing programs; I acquire knowledge

and experience), we formed a working relationship.

Six weeks later, as a result of the PR Director's anticipated departure

due to a move out of the area, the organization's CEO contacted me and

asked me to consider the opportunity of a broader role with CPYB,

Director of Strategic Marketing and Communications. Needless to say,

CPYB is an amazing organization, and I accepted! During December, I'm

experiencing the luxury of easing into my new position on a part-time

basis and will begin full-time January 4. Does it get any better!

Thanks for helping bring me to Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet. I

promise not to sport a tutu anytime soon as it would not be a pretty

picture. 😉

Merry Christmas, Ned.
