November 2017 Letter from the President
Hello from the Dallas-Ft. Worth AWM chapter! Between all the client meetings, putting together sales pitches, planning and buying and creating and producing spots, the fall is a busy time for us all. In the midst of it all I wanted to take a moment to say I am thankful to all of you that have and continue to support AWM. Without you we would not be able to support education through scholarships and events such as Media Con and Student Media Tour, so from all of us on the AWM Board, thank you!
For those of you who are not familiar with who AWM is and what we do, our mission as an organization is to “advance the impact of women, young professionals and students who endeavor to work in the media and allied fields by educating and acting as a resource to our members and the industry.” Your membership and involvement supports our student scholarships and educational events and that in turns helps to advance our ever changing industry.
Thank you again for your support in helping to make these things possible!
