Master's thesis — Recruiting a participant company

Ned,

Hi, I am recruiting a company to participate in a survey for my Master's

thesis on media selection in internal communications. Could you please

include the following listing?:

I am conducting a survey as part of my Master¹s thesis in Communication from

Johns Hopkins University. I am researching employee and internal

communicators preferences for using certain types of media in their

workplace, as well as overall communication satisfaction.

This study will be comprised of a Web-based survey all employees and all

internal communicators in a Washington, DC-area company that has at least

200 employees. The organization must possess full-time internal

communications staff and currently use the following vehicles to communicate

with employees: social networking, e-mail, Intranet, and company Web site.

The results of this research may help researchers and internal

communications professionals better understand the reasons why employees use

certain types of media, so your participation would be very helpful.

If your company fits these criteria and is interested in participating,

please contact Michelle Vanderhoff at michelle.vanderhoff@gmail.com.

Thank you!

Michelle Vanderhoff

*** Mayo Clinic Presentation of Continuous Chest Compression CPR

*** From Larry Bearfield, proprietor of Fern’s Country Store in Carlisle, Mass, and creator of the OpSki program for the military community (excerpted from Fern’s Pickle Barrel E-News):

Last weekend, Robin and I took time to attend a Military ski event out in the Berkshires. Called Sno!!!Jam, it's a weekend for Military personnel that we were involved with in a past life when we invented a program called Operation Ski & Snowboard (OpSki). essentially we worked with ski resorts worldwide to develop lift ticket and lodging discounts for qualified military personnel – a small market of about 11 million. Weekend on-mountain fun, family events at resorts like Copper Mountain, Squaw, Steamboat, Attitash, Berkshire East were part of the offerings. It was a phenomenal program. All privately run – which astounded The Pentagon when we were called to Washington to help them understand how we could develop a program with no government help. Then the dot-com bust hit before we were able to finally ink the big deal. Timing's everything in life.

Meanwhile, because of the exposure, ski resorts worldwide continue to offer the Military Discounts we helped establish. That's fulfilling. And on-mountain events like Sno!!!Jam here and the USAF Academy's SnoFest at Keystone continue.

We went to the event out in the Berkshires because of the many lasting friendships we made. It's not about the skiing. Primarily a US Navy event, other services have attended, including the Air National Guard Unit that were part of the rescue in The Perfect Storm as well as Army, Marine and Coast Guard personnel. “Locals” like USS Constitution crew members attend as well as folks who flew in from as far away as San Diego! What was especially fun was that we had several Fernites From Afah Chapter Presidents in attendance. We collected on the beers they owed us for their appointments.

But here's the point of all of this. Regardless of your political persuasion, when you spend time with these men & women you can't help but be inspired by their zest for life, positive can-do attitude, their unwavering commitment to what they do and the intense loyalty they hold in their hearts for their friends. We all wish that we didn't have a need for a military force but that's a fantasy. And when we need them – these are the professionals that I want on my side. We all have our daily grind – but you have to admire what they volunteer to do.

(Fern’s is the official country store of the JOTW network. Stop in and tell them you heard about Fern’s from JOTW and get a free cup of coffee! Larry, I’m going to post this in the newsletter.)

Hey Ned,

I'd be happy to share the editorial from our recent Ferns Country Store Pickle Barrel E-News with your loyal readers! However, YOUR readers should know that when we developed OpSki you were active duty at the time and you were instrumental in helping us launch the program. It was pretty 'out-of-the-box' for most of the military folks we were trying to work with. Probably due to the fact that it was one of the first times all branches were brought together in a cooperative effort. But you helped penetrate some of the key naysayers which paved the way for us. And when you were CO of the Naval Media Center your intro of us to the Navy Marine Corps News staff resulted in the first and only on-mountian, slope side production of the weekly news. Operation Ski & Snowboard was, without question, a tremendous success with thousands of military personnel and their families were able to enjoy the benefits of our OpSki program – – without costing the taxpayers one dime! Ultimately, when the dot-com bust hit, we were no longer able to sustain the program. And unfortunately, no one was willing to pick it up to continue it.

By the way, your readers are also welcome to subscribe for our free Pickle Barrel e-news: http://www.listcast.com/x?oid=24464m

Best,

Larry

2.) Marketing and Development Assistant, Eastern State Penitentiary Historic Site, Philadelphia, PA

Organization Description

Eastern State Penitentiary was once the most famous and expensive prison in the world, but stands today in ruin, a haunting world of crumbling cellblocks and empty guard towers. Known for its grand architecture and strict discipline, this was the world’s first true “penitentiary,” a prison designed to inspire penitence, or true regret, in the hearts of convicts. Its vaulted, sky-lit cells once held many of America’s most notorious criminals, including bank robber “Slick Willie” Sutton and Al Capone. Tours today include the cellblocks, solitary punishment cells, Al Capone’s Cell, and Death Row. A critically acclaimed series of artists’ installations is free with admission. Eastern State Penitentiary Historic Site is located at 22nd Street and Fairmount Avenue, just five blocks from the Philadelphia Museum of Art. It is open every day, year round (guided tours only from December 1 to March 14).

Eastern State Penitentiary Historic Site is a small organization (eleven full-time employees) but is growing quickly. The organization prides itself on its innovative approach and excellence in programming, ambitious outreach, and an upbeat and respectful office culture.

Known for its grand architecture and strict discipline, this was the world’s first true “penitentiary,” a prison designed to inspire penitence, or true regret, in the hearts of convicts. Its vaulted, sky-lit cells once held many of America’s most notorious criminals, including bank robber “Slick Willie” Sutton and Al Capone. Tours today include the cellblocks, solitary punishment cells, Al Capone’s Cell, and Death Row. A critically acclaimed series of artists’ installations is free with admission. Eastern State Penitentiary Historic Site is located at 22nd Street and Fairmount Avenue, just five blocks from the Philadelphia Museum of Art. It is open every day, year round (guided tours only from December 1 to March 14).

Eastern State Penitentiary Historic Site is a small organization (eleven full-time employees) but is growing quickly. The organization prides itself on innovative approach and excellence in programming, ambitious outreach, and an upbeat and respectful office culture.
