PSE Spring 2014 Update
Members of the Zeta Epsilon chapter of Pi Sigma Epsilon (PSE) at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire started off spring semester by initiating 17 new members on Tuesday, February 18.
The chapter received the PSE Bronze Chapter Award for its hard work the past year. This national award is presented annually to chapters that have gone the “extra mile” in their reports, the community, and in competition.
Blugold chapter members recently participated in a PSE-organized competition where schools from across the United States submitted a tactical marketing plan for a new vacation planning website called Outski. While the UW-Eau Claire chapter did not move on in the competition by placing in the Top 10, members were excited about the opportunity to work on the project.
In April, Zeta Epsilon members will travel to Miami, Florida for the PSE National Educational Foundation Sales & Marketing Convention. UW-Eau Claire students attending nationals are Jordan Andert, Molly Beane, Conrad Bergeron, Tim Bortner, Kyle Carr, Dominic Craig, Chris Cull, Anthony Ipecki, Lindsey Janz, Kelsey Keiser, Danny Klagos, Kalli Limmer, Jacob Meeks, Nathan Piel, Cody Sanoy, Danielle Siegle, Ben Van Lieshout, and Stephanie Weltzien. In addition to listening to keynote speakers, and attending workshops and networking events, UW-Eau Claire students will compete in either the Pro-Am Sell-A-Thon or a marketing challenge. Last year, UW-Eau Claire PSE president Kellen Busey took 4th nationally in the Pro-Am. The bar is set slightly higher this year as members of the Blugold team hope to finish in the Top 3.
Pi Sigma Epsilon (PSE) is the national fraternity for men and women interested in sales, marketing and management.
