Hello to all in our expanding media industry and other supporters!Laurie_1_1
We are excited about getting to know more of you and giving you more opportunities to learn about AWM and engage with us and your fellow media industry partners this year. AWM is a diverse community of women and men who facilitate collaboration and education in our industry. Many of you still remember us as American Women in Radio and Television/AWRT, but you may not realize that we are the longest established professional association dedicated to advancing women in media. Our goal is to empower career development, engage in thought leadership and drive positive change for our industry.

You are what makes AWM a meaningful organization to our industry! Our day-to-day local initiatives are to increase opportunities for you to be a part of the organization through committees, event planning, sponsorship and simply telling others about AWM. Please let us know how you would like to be involved!

2014 ended on a high note with our inaugural Women’s Leadership Forum with keynote speaker, Laura Sobiech, introduced by Hubbard Radio’s Ginny Hubbard Morris and Dan Seeman showcasing the impact that media has in our communities near and far.

The first event of 2015 was our Retail Therapy Luncheon with a stellar panel of retailers, Mall of America, Bibelot and Bachman’s Floral and Gifts, with Nicole Nye, SVP of Marketing at OLSON, as moderator. Timely information was shared about how they tackle multi-generational marketing and incorporate the growing number of platforms with which to deliver their message. Please check our events page for all events coming this year. We hope to see you there!
