Big Changes Coming to St. Louis Women in Media!
Since 2009, St. Louis Women in Media has been dedicated to the education and advancement of local, female professionals and hobbyists in the communications field. In an effort to better fulfill that mission and serve the women of St. Louis, we have decided to make a few changes in the structure of our organization.
No more membership fees! We want to open up the group to a larger, more informal membership. This means there will no longer be a formal membership application or dues. Current members will be issued refunds based on the number of quarterly events held since they signed up.
Open LinkedIn Group! You will still have to be approved for membership – after all, we want to make sure the group members are local media professionals and hobbyists, not spammers! – but the group, which had previously been open only to dues-paying members, will be an open and public forum to discuss issues at hand for media professionals in St. Louis, and beyond.
We will still remain a non-profit organization, and an advisory board will remain in place. While the board works on making these changes, we have suspended all events – including the conference that was scheduled for May 18, 2012.
We thank you for your continued support as we implement these changes. We are confident that this will allow us to better serve the female community of media professionals in St. Louis.
