The Association for Women in Sports Media is hosting its annual national convention this week at the Montelucia Resort & Spa in Scottsdale, Ariz., and nearly 200 members will take part in the conference.
After more than a year of planning, we’re about to kick off a celebration of AWSM’s 25 years, complete with founding members, convention veterans and plenty of new faces.
Our 2013 convention will not only showcase how far our organization has come by honoring our founding members, but also what our future is shaping up to be with the presentation of new AWSM student chapters chartering at universities across the country.
We welcome you to AWSM in Arizona, and we welcome those who cannot attend but will be following us through various social media.
