Bridget Conk – Running for VP of Member Services
Public relations relies heavily on strong communication skills. To me, as a UVU senior majoring in Public Relations, this requires the ability to speak with everyone in their native communication tongue. I pride myself on the ability to dig a bit deeper to truly find how to get through to everyone individually. The corporate world sometimes requires other languages. I am fluent in the Microsoft Office Suite, Apple products, and social media. I believe that experience opens doors and creates a globally understood mission statement of hard work. As UVU’s PRSSA VP of Member Services, it is my desire to expand our chapter by welcoming new members, fostering current relationships, and maintaining existing networks with our amazing alumni. I will do everything in my power to extend my knowledge and a helping hand to every outlet available to me.
