New Student Group Targets Sales Professionals

Pi Sigma Epsilon (PSE), a national professional fraternity for sales, marketing, and sales management, is establishing a student chapter at UW-Eau Claire. Through PSE, students can gain real world experience while networking with other students and companies around the country. The organization currently has over 50 chapters nationwide.

The Eau Claire chapter will hold its meetings on Tuesday nights.

PSE’s chapter kickoff will be Tuesday, April 15 in Schneider Hall 225. Don Adams, regional sales manager for The Standard Register Company, will speak to members. Refreshments will be served. All students are invited to attend.
