The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire chapter of Pi Sigma Epsilon (PSE), the national, co-ed fraternity for collegians and professionals in sales, marketing and management, hosted the PSE Midwest Regional Conference at UW-Eau Claire, October 18-21, 2012. Students from 13 collegiate chapters in Wisconsin, Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, Missouri, and South Dakota attended the event.

For the second year in a row Kellen Busey, a UW-Eau Claire professional sales marketing student from Rochester, MN, won the Midwest Regional PSE Pro-Am Sell-a-Thon. She received a competition packet worth $275, and a free flight to 2013 PSE National Convention in San Diego, CA where she will compete in the 2013 National PSE Pro-Am Sell-a-Thon. Ryan Gilmore, a UW-Eau Claire professional sales marketing student from Pine City, MN, placed second. He received a competition packet worth $275.

A team consisting of UW-Eau Claire student Jordan Burnett, a professional sales marketing student from Center City, MN, and four students from other PSE chapters won the Midwest Regional TEKsystems Marketing Challenge. This event required teams to develop a campaign promoting TEKsystems’ small business services sales and sales internship opportunities. Burnett and her team members each won a Starbucks gift card and the right to represent the Midwest region at the National TEKsystems Marketing Challenge held during the National PSE Convention.
