Welcome! My name is Michelle Malinger and I’m currently a student at Salisbury University in Salisbury, MD. I’m majoring in Communication Arts with a Public Relations concentration and a minor in Theater. My projected graduated date is December 2013. After graduating, I will pursue a career in event planning and fundraising.
I’m currently the Membership Assistant at Delmarva Public Radio, a nonprofit NPR and classical station located on Salisbury University’s campus. I assist in membership duties while organizing online auctions as well as membership drives. Additionally, I am the Event Planner/Public Relations Officer for SU’s Communication Arts Honor Society, Lambda Pi Eta.
This blog has been created in conjunction with my senior seminar focusing on Social Media. It will offer insight on event planning in the social media age as well as fundraising and basic public relations for nonprofits. Delmarva Public Radio is also a source for local, national, and international news so the connection between journalism and social media will also be entertained.
