Welcome to the CAS Staff Spotlight, a column featuring members of the CAS staff. For this spotlight we are proud to introduce you to Alice Chambers.
- What do you do at the CAS?
As the marketing and corporate relations manager, I oversee the CAS Society Partners Program, work with exhibitors, sponsors and advertisers at CAS conferences, and am the staff liaison for the Employers Advisory Council. I also promote CAS conferences and the Career Center.
- What do you enjoy most about your job?
I value working with CAS Society Partners and helping them to develop relationships with our members. I am also excited about the logistical planning for exhibitors, sponsors and advertisers at CAS conferences.
- College and degree:
I graduated from Elon University in North Carolina where I was an international studies major and communications minor.
- First job out of college:
I worked for an event-based marketing and communications firm in D.C. We produced high-profile national and international events that focused on brand elevation for our clients.
- Describe yourself in three words:
Friendly, ambitious, dedicated.
- Favorite weekend activity:
Over the weekends I have fun exploring D.C. with friends and also traveling to new places.
- Favorite travel destination:
That’s a tough choice, but I think that Portugal has been my favorite travel destination. There are so many unique and beautiful parts of the country, but I particularly enjoyed the city of Porto and the area surrounding the Duoro River Valley.
- One interesting or fun fact about you:
I was fortunate enough to study abroad three times. In high school I spent a month in Cádiz, Spain, and in college I spent a month in Costa Rica and a semester in Florence, Italy.
