November 11, 2016

NEW YORK (Nov. 11, 2016) The Fashion Institute of Technology’s (FIT) Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA) Chapter, along with Baruch College’s and Hofstra University’s PRSSA Chapters, gathered at Gotham West Market to bring New York’s Chapters closer together.

"Being in New York City, there are so many opportunities as students and young professionals,” said Nicole Armeno, FIT PRSSA president. “This year we are making it a priority to strengthen relations between the New York City PRSSA Chapters."

The first meeting between the New York PRSSA Chapters consisted of eating, telling stories and brainstorming ideas.

Hofstra PRSSA will host the next gathering to continue fostering stronger relationships between the Chapters and their members. With more gatherings in the future, the Chapters can continue to collaborate on ideas and events to create a stronger community and network for members.

“By networking with other PRSSA members who share our New York state of mind, we are able to not only build professional relationships, but also foster friendships,” said Ilana Maurer, FIT PRSSA vice president.
