Faculty in the department of Business Communication who teach Public Speaking will meet at 6 p.m. on August 5 for dinner and conversation about the course. This yearly meeting allows new faculty to meet the those who have been teaching at Stevenson, and gives all the chance to share teaching tips and speaking suggestions.

The dinner meeting always marks the start of the fall semester as faculty conclude work on syllabi and activities for the upcoming term.

Here, three BizComm faculty members -- Dr. Deric Greene, Dr. Heather Harris, and Ms. Stephanie Verni -- prepare for a presentation.

Congratulations to the authors!

The department of Business Communication will welcome event whiz Michelle Damareck, CMP, this fall, as the Event Planning and Publicity course enters its third year, the first with Michelle as faculty.

Her own event planning company, "Run of Show Event Management," specializes in a full range of event management services, offering dynamic, efficient and cost-effective platforms to wow any audience.

With past experience at Constellation Energy and Fandango Productions, Michelle will be able to draw on a vast number and variety of events to help students learn the ropes of planning and production.

Welcome, Michelle!

"There's no rest for the weary..." or so the saying goes. At the end of the year, the full-time faculty in BizComm always look forward to their academic retreat, held this year in the School of Business. The day was filled with business, reflection, and humor as the faculty planned activities, examined courses, and talked shop as they made ready for the 2014-15 academic year. A close examination of the curriculum, issues of branding, and ideas for new courses were among the highlights of the day. Pictured at left, the six full-time members of the BizComm family.
