Vice President of Events and Fundraising
Milagros Orcoyen, 2023-2024 Vice President of Events and Fundraising, is a junior at Universidad Argentina de la Empresa (UADE) in Buenos Aires, Argentina. She is studying public relations and institutional communication.
She joined PRSSA as a freshman because she wanted to gain pre-professional experience and be part of a community of people with similar interests and passions. Little did she know that PRSSA would change her life!
Milagros had the opportunity to serve as events committee coordinator at her local Chapter as a first-year student. She was also the conference coordinator for “PR Stages”, UADE PRSSA’s first District Conference.
Milagros had the honor to serve as PRSSA National’s 2022-2023 Vice President of Events and Fundraising. She received The Elaine Averick Outstanding National Committee Member Award in recognition of her dedicated service to the National Committee and members of PRSSA.
Milagros is thrilled to continue serving the Society as the 2023-2024 Vice President of Events and Fundraising. She is excited to connect with members and Chapters from all over the globe, have meaningful conversations with them, and help them achieve their goals.
Aside from her PRSSA involvements, Milagros works for different organizations and non-profits. She volunteers at GEO, a sustainable development center from the University of Buenos Aires (UBA), where she is a member of the communications department. Additionally, she holds the position of writer at The Jane Goodall Institute Argentina. Milagros is also the executive social media director and a videocast host at The Business Takeaway, a student-led company based in Lincoln, Nebraska that provides tools and information for students and early career professionals.
In her spare time, Milagros enjoys listening to podcasts, biking, and going for long walks.
