The Event Group has added Joy Maxberry Woodruff to their team as the event and political campaign coordinator, a position she already has tons of experience in. The Event Group is an event planning organization in the Pittsburgh area.
“I am thrilled to be here and they seem thrilled to have me,” said Woodruff. “I’ve spoken with people about my new position and every time I tell them, they say that’s a perfect position for you. It really does seem like a good fit.”
JOY MAXBERRY WOODRUFF
Shelia Weiner, owner of the Event Group, agreed that Woodruff will be a good fit to the organization. “We are delighted to have Joy join the Event Group and I feel she will bring creativity and expertise (to the position),”she said.
Woodruff has more than 25 years of experience in organizing and coordination. She was the president of the Pittsburgh Steelers Wives organization, the host of WCWB-TV’s “Inside/Outside Pittsburgh” and managing editor of Career Digest Magazine. And when it comes to political campaigns, Woodruff is very familiar with the task. She recently coordinated several successful campaigns for local candidates.
“I have worked for many political candidates and have received glowing remarks. I would find myself going above and beyond, because that’s just the type of person I am,” she said. “I am glad that we (the organization) are able to expand into the political arena, as well as doing event and more.”
Woodruff’s new position offers clients and candidates the best possible election results by developing and delivering a superior image and by providing maximum exposure and outreach to the voters. Her service’s include image consulting, campaign message development, speech writing, planning and hosting fund-raising events and voter contact coordination.
After coordinating campaigns on a voluntary basis, she joked that now when someone asks her to help with their campaign she can hand them her business card and say, “Come to my office and we’ll discuss it.”
