A Message from Our President

Summer is in full swing and so is Women in Media! The group celebrated a highly successful 12th Annual Awards of Excellence banquet in April. In May, we welcomed Chris Graham with Dale Carnegie Training who coached us on the art of conversation. In June, we heard from an Advertising Agency Panel that included guest speakers Holly Andrews of Moran Group, Kristen Morrison of Red Six Media, and Nancy Steiner of Diane Allen & Associates Advertising.
