2014 has been rolling by with incredible Women in Media programs and events for our members and guests! LSU Manship Dean Jerry Ceppos will be the speaker for our meeting on September 17th. Future meetings will feature John Georges, Publisher of “The Advocate” on Wednesday, October 15th and Vicki Zimmerman, Regional News Director for Raycom Media on Wednesday, November 19th.
In addition, I would like to thank the Lane Agency and Midnight Productions, Inc. for arranging an upcoming VIP tour of the 13th Gate and Necropolis 13 on October 23rd. This is an annual treat for our members and the members of Ad Fed-BR.
We have also had several new members join this year, so if you are new to Women in Media, I would like to thank you for your membership and encourage you to seek out opportunities to be active within the organization! Getting involved is the BEST way to network with our talented group of women.
Later in the year, we will be posting information about the Board of Directors. The 2013-2015 board term will come to a close in the spring. If you are interested in joining the Board, please feel free to contact me or any board member for more information.
In closing, I want to share a short and simple quote posted on Twitter by Women in Media Past President Saundra Lane: "Don't look back; you're not going that way."
Here's to a happy and productive fall season for you all!
