Student Art League
I served as the Student Art League Secretary during the 2009-2010 term and President during the 2010-2011 term. I helped organize the first and second annual Student Art League silent art auction, Bella Notte, which resulted in 200 attendees and close to $4,000 raised each year.
I also helped organize trips to New York and Chicago, two annual juried exhibitions and professional development workshops
Public Relations Student Society of America
In the 2009-2010 term I was the PRSSA co-fundraising chair and scheduled at least one fundraiser a month, raising more than $3,000 in the academic year. I also established the first student-run public relations firm for the Minnesota State Mankato chapter of PRSSA, Expertise PR.
With Expertise PR we assisted numerous student groups coordinate events and fundraisers. In March 2011 we organized a Nearly Naked Run -- where students ran a mile around campus nearly-naked and donated clothes to charity -- which had 200 participants who donated 31 40-gallon bags of clothing to MRCI.
Art History Roundtable
I have been a member of Art History Roundtable for four years, as such I was elected by my peers in the roles of president, vice-president and secretary. In my various roles, I coordinated professional development workshops, organized art-related tours and trips, and led weekly meetings where we discussed happenings in the art world.
