AWM kicked off another exciting year with the Members Only Luncheon and installation of new officers on June 25th. It is a privilege to serve as President of The Dallas Area Alliance for Women in Media Foundation in the coming year. I want to recognize all of the Board of Directors – click here for stepping up to make a difference in the media community. Our goal is to advance the impact of women, young professionals and students and we are planning lots of activities to do this.
Mark your calendars for the following events!
Fall Premiere Party on Thursday, August 14, from 5:30-8:30 p.m. at Maggiano’s NorthPark. This will be a wonderful evening when you’ll get a preview of the Fall TV lineup and be able to hear presentations from the radio groups ~ all in one location! Click here to register.
The 2015 Gala and Awards of Excellence is planned for Thursday, April 16th and will once again be held at the stunning Omni Hotel. This is AWM’s major fundraiser of the year when the media community turns out to support AWM and recognize the Awards of Excellence winners. Over 500 people attended last year -- you won’t want to miss this year’s event!

What AWM Means To Me (from our Past President)
Senior Broadcast Negotiator
5 Years in AWM
Secretary, Membership Co-Chair and President
I joined AWM for the networking opportunities. In 2008, I had just been laid off from an ad agency that I had worked at for many, many years. Vivian Unger and I reconnected and not only did she suggest that I join AWM, but that I take on a Board position. So I became the Secretary, then Membership Co-Chair and eventually President. I have met so many outstanding members of the advertising community and wonder why I didn't join AWM sooner. And now that I'm working again (re-hired by my old agency), I feel very strongly about giving back to AWM and contributing to the media community. AWM's "education and resource" mission differentiates us from other advertising organizations and we need to continue developing these goals.
Want to connect with or meet more people? Are you new to town and need a group to identify with? Then get involved by volunteering on a committee! Please contact our Hospitality Co-Chairs - Jordan Hutchinson at firstname.lastname@example.org or Sydney Veno at email@example.com. For Committee descriptions, please click here. If you enjoy party planning, AWM is still in need of two Board Co-Chairs for next year’s Fall Premiere.
