A few weeks later MI-ACM members hit the road again and headed to Cincinnati, Oh for the annual Central States Region Conference & Trade Show hosted by the City of Cincinnati. This three day conference was packed with enriching workshops and plenty of time to network. Beth Romeo, the CS-ACM Chair stated, “These conferences wouldn’t happen without your support, so thank you for attending, and thank you to all of our Sponsors, Vendors, and Presenters!”

The Keynote luncheon speaker was Dr. Odell Owens who spoke on the Importance of Teaching our Youth Responsible Communications in the Age of Multimedia Production. And the Roxie L. Cole Leadership Award went to John Wasylko of Brunswick’s channel 22- the BEAT (Brunswick Education Access Television).  The State Chapters even hosted a networking event at Rhinegeist on Wednesday night.

That’s a warp for this year’s spring events, but we hope to see you all again in the Fall for our annual Station Tour. Date TBA, but we’ll be heading up north to UpNoth Media Center in Traverse City, MI. And as always stay tuned for more MI-ACM events in 2018.
