Every time we nominate a new member of the month, we are reminded how stellar our chapter members are. This month was especially so as we had four incredible nominees: Libby Mueller, Ian Bennett, the Fall Recruitment Committee, and Charlie Biederman.
Libby Mueller has always been a consistent, dependable force on the Public Relations Committee. This month, she launched our Snapshot Series on this news site and has taken care of reaching out to our guest authors, organizing the content and publishing it weekly. She is always ready to step up and take on more work whenever the committee needs to get something done beyond our wordpress site, such as helping the other committee members with their individual projects and generating new ideas. Many of her contributions have been behind the scenes and she is very humble but Libby definitely deserves recognition for her awesome work and dependability.
Ian Bennett worked on a project for a clothing company during which he spent over 12 sleepless hours developing the presentation that would be presented to the client. The client loved the team’s work and his contributions were reflected in the client’s perception of the entire PSE Miami chapter. His work was incredibly professional and well-done, and the project team is thankful for the time he spent on it. Beyond this specific project, he is known for being one of the first to step up and help with whatever the chapter needs, whether in design work or for a client meeting, and does so with a positive attitude.
This semester’s recruitment team consisted of Ben Arwine, Andy Auble, Hailey Gilman, Olivia Greiszmer, Jack Milkie and Katie Roberts. These members have worked tirelessly since August to promote our recruitment events, work our info nights, and interview for many, many hours. We could not be happier with the new member class that they have recruited. Another shout out to our superstar Director of Technology, Ben Nader: a HUGE reason that our recruitment process went as smoothly as it did!
Ultimately, Charlie Biederman was chosen as our September Member of the Month. He has been a huge part of the new members’ first few weeks in the chapter, acting as a new member team lead. Not only has he been incredibly welcoming and enthusiastic for the small group that he leads, he has also reached out to the entire new member class to make sure that they feel welcome and at home in PSE Miami. Even though he was not a part of the aforementioned recruitment committee, he played a big part in the process of recruiting our new members and getting them excited about joining PSE. BREAKING NEWS: He was also just chosen as our organization’s Homecoming King Nominee, so be sure to vote for him!
Thank you to all of our nominees for your hard work, dedication and passion: all of you truly embody what it means to be PSE Miami.
