Association for Women in Sports Media Members Attend National Convention
The Weekend Included Panel Sessions and a Job Fair
Columbia, Mo. (Aug. 31, 2016) — The Missouri student chapter of the Association for Women in Sports Media (AWSM) recently attended the organization’s national convention in Miami. Seven student members and faculty adviser Elizabeth Frogge attended panels and workshops led by industry professionals throughout the three-day weekend.
Frogge is an associate professor at the Missouri School of Journalism. Members reported on the convention on the AWSM Missouri blog.
The opening ceremony was held on the private beach of the headquarters hotel where members networked with national board members, other professionals in attendance, and the other student chapter members. Suzy Kolber from ESPN opened the weekend by sharing her story as a woman in sports media, and Katie Nolan from FOX Sports joined the closing ceremony. Throughout the weekend, AWSM Missouri members had the opportunity to meet professionals from ESPN, MLB Network, FOX Sports, USA Today Sports, and many others.
Missouri members actively participated in all aspects of the weekend including professional panels, student panels, resume and hiring workshops, and a job fair.
In 2015 AWSM Missouri was named the national winner of the third annual Student Chapter of the Year.
The Missouri chapter was one of the first AWSM student chapters in the nation, and membership has grown rapidly since its founding in 2013.
