*** Marquette University/Arthur W. Page Corporate Communication Commons event

Friday, April 20, 2012

Diederich College of Communication, Marquette University, Milwaukee, Wisconsin

The inaugural Marquette University/Arthur W. Page Corporate Communication Commons event will focus on the relationship between corporations and society. What expectations do key stakeholders have for corporations as purveyors of social value and how do we communicate in ways that allow these stakeholders to understand and believe the ways corporates can and do meet these expectations.

The Corporate Communication Commons will provide an opportunity for corporate communication professionals to come together to consider how corporations embody social human values in ways that resonate with key stakeholders. The conference will consider issues that exist at the intersection of corporate identity, shared values and stakeholder trust.

To register for the Corporate Communication Commons Conference, please visit our registration page on the Marquette University website or email Meghan O’Leary at meghan.oleary@marquette.edu.

*** SNA Maritime Security Forum

The Surface Navy Association and the Coast Guard Cuttermen Association

Maritime Security Forum – March 14 2012 United States Coast Guard Academy, New London, Connecticut

The Surface Navy Association along with the Coast Guard Cuttermen Association are sponsoring our second Maritime Security Forum, entitled “Maritime Security: Guarding Our Country and Our Way of Life” to be held March 14, 2012 at the United States Coast Guard Academy, New London, Connecticut.

This event will bring Navy, Coast Guard, Industry, Inter-agency and International stakeholders together to discuss the Cooperative Strategy for 21st Century Sea power and how it applies to maritime security.

At this event we will examine the threats to America and its allies, both large and small. We will look into how disruptions to maritime commerce have global implications and how homeland defense begins far from our shores, and involves a broad spectrum of participants, each with vital capability and capacity. We will see how armed services and civilian agencies cooperate to share information and act upon that information and how industry contributes to global maritime domain awareness. We will show how technology, operations, policy, and information sharing must be coordinated to achieve maritime security.

We are presenting leaders who can address operations, policy, technology, and above all the importance of partnerships to achieve maritime security. No individual service or organization can solely ensure maritime security.

Details and registration for this thought provoking event can be found at http://www.navysna.org/CGForum/Index.htm.

30.) COMMUNICATIONS SPECIALIST – VFRC, IFDC, Washington, D.C.

IFDC has launched the Virtual Fertilizer Research Center (VFRC), a global research initiative to create the next generation of fertilizers and production technologies to help feed the world’s growing population and ultimately provide food security, while protecting the environment and ensuring the sustainable use of the earth’s non-renewable resources. The VFRC is a semi-autonomous unit of IFDC with its own Board of Advisors. The Executive Director of the VFRC leads the activities by developing the research priorities and agenda, reviewing the work of subordinate staff and collaborators, developing proposals, overseeing project progress interacting with donors, etc.

DUTIES

This position reports to the VFRC’s Executive Director and is located in Washington, D.C. The incumbent will work with the Executive Director and IFDC’s Chief Communications Officer/Coordinator of the Information & Communications Unit to develop public relations, communications and marketing strategies to reach the VFRC’s target audiences. Duties may include:

Helping to implement the overall communications strategy for the VFRC

Developing materials to be included in the VFRC and IFDC annual reports and other communications vehicles

Writing articles for inclusion in various publications distributed internationally to the agricultural, scientific and development communities (e.g., interviewing staff regarding research projects, preparing news releases about the activities conducted by VFRC)

Helping to create awareness of and enhance the image of VFRC by promoting its programs and services (e.g., writing brochures and booklets for distribution, developing promotional multi-media presentations)

Editing papers written by VFRC staff, consultants and/or contributors to the VFRC

Developing content for the VFRC and IFDC websites; determining what information to include on the website; editing copy, video and photography

Performing other VFRC-related duties as necessary (e.g., representing the organization at meetings/conferences, maintaining donor databases, actively participating in fund-raising activities, etc.)

JOB REQUIREMENTS

This position requires creativity and the ability to communicate effectively in order to disseminate information to numerous audiences. This job may involve the following:

Ability to communicate effectively through multiple media channels (e.g., print, video, Internet, etc.).

Ability to glean information to be used in articles, video, presentations and publications (e.g., interviewing staff regarding research projects, assembling data to be used in articles, video, blogs, publications and presentations).

Knowledge of editing skills and practices to maintain quality in VFRC’s articles, publications and presentations.

Ability to conceptualize ideas for various types of promotional packages such as brochures, booklets, flyers, videos, etc. The creativity to design, develop and implement these concepts would be beneficial.

Ability to understand and apply promotional/marketing techniques to aid in the organization’s ability to attract donors for its research, development and field programs.

Minimum of Bachelor’s degree in Public Relations, Journalism or English and 5+ years of relevant work experience. Degree and/or knowledge of development and/or developing nations’ agricultural/environmental needs, practical and theoretical research is desired.

DIFFICULTY OF WORK

This position requires a general understanding of public relations and marketing principles and procedures and the ability to apply these in effectively promoting the organization’s image. Occasionally these guidelines must be adapted to a given situation (e.g., using the appropriate fund-raising activities to attract donors). This position also requires the ability to detect discrepancies in technical writing (e.g., annual report contributions from various researchers) and the ability to synthesize this material prepared by scientists/other staff having varying backgrounds and writing styles.

RESPONSIBILITY

This position assists the Executive Director of the VFRC in decisions regarding how to promote and what to include in promotional material (e.g., content/distribution), and then helps generate, design and develop original promotional concepts using a variety of media. Most decisions are approved by the Executive Director, supported by IFDC’s Chief Communications Officer prior to implementation. Work is either self-started or assigned by the supervisor. Work is reviewed by various levels of management to ensure technical content and accuracy. Weekly meetings may be held with the supervisor to discuss objectives and review completed work. Undetected errors may reflect negatively on VFRC and IFDC and its reputation with their target audiences (e.g., clients, donors, public). However, such errors should be detected upon review of the promotional literature by the supervisor.

PERSONAL WORK RELATIONSHIPS

Frequent contact is made with one or more other staff members of VFRC and periodically IFDC to provide advice/counsel regarding technical reports and promotional activities. Frequent contact is also made with staff, donors and industry to obtain and disseminate information and to promote the technical services of VFRC.

PHYSICAL EFFORT AND WORK ENVIRONMENT

This position requires working in a normal office environment with no unusual physical demands or exposure to hazardous situations. Occasional travel within the United States and/or internationally may be required. CLOSING DATE FOR APPLICATION: March 10, 2012
