NJ International Association of Business Communicators Sponsors Panel

Madison, NJ (January 23, 2006)—Why should business professionals consider taking a Masters degree in corporate communication? A panel of successful communicators will answer this question on Thursday, February 16, 2006, at the Rothman Institute Auditorium on Fairleigh Dickinson University’s College at Florham campus. Six professionals in the field of communications will talk about the impact that completing an MA degree has had on their careers and personal lives.

“The benefits of an advanced degree are many,” says Gary Radford, Director of the MA in Corporate and Organizational Communication program at FDU, “They include better performance in the workplace, expanded skill sets, greater marketability in the job market, creation of new professional networks, insights into the work of leading practitioners and theorists, the feeling of self-worth one feels when one completes a thesis and the joy of spirited discussions with professors and fellow students.”

The panel is made up of six members of the MA in Corporate and Organizational Communication Board of Corporate Advisors, each with diverse professional experiences in the field of communications. Panelists include: Adam Yates, Director of Corporate Communications at Fuji Photo Film U.S.A., Inc.; Roderick Jussim, Newswriter for CNBC; Pamela J. Principe-Golgolab, President/Owner of PNA Associates, Inc.; Caroline Langer, Manager of Corporate Communications at J.M. Huber; Justin Lash, Communications Consultant at Towers Perrin; and Jeffrey Dunsavage, Director of Internal Communications at Telcordia Technologies. “This event will be of interest to anyone who is feeling the urge to get ahead, increase his or her knowledge, skills, and effectiveness, or stretch his or her brain in new and unexpected directions,” says Radford.

The panel is sponsored by the New Jersey International Association of Business Communicators (NJ/IABC), an organization that offers a collective resource of experts in the art of business communications. Members are industry leaders who specialize in writing, design, creative services, concepts, marketing, positioning and technology.

The panel will be held from 6 p.m. – 8 p.m. in the Rothman Institute Auditorium on FDU’s College at Florham campus, 285 Madison Avenue, Madison. There is a $40 registration fee. To register, call NJ/IABC administrator Pat Lurker at 973-267-4328. For more information, visit http://www.njiabc.com
