I’ve been coming to conferences since 1995. Each year is memorable — the location, catching up with new and old friends, learning more about my “trade” from speakers — it’s become the most important event of the year to me, personally.

I am the scholarship chair and I’ll tell you a little known fact — if you are a member taking college courses you get priority consideration for one of our two $750 college scholarships. Visit the NMPW site link for scholarship info. Deadline to apply is March 7!


Last year I went to my first NMPW conference, and I’m looking forward to welcoming press women (& men) to Albuquerque for the next.

A little about me–By day, I’m a mild-mannered writer/editor at UNM Communication & Marketing; by night, I quickly dash into a phone booth and become poet-girl. I’ve also been dabbling in photography of late, as well as audio/video for Web.

I hope to meet verbal/visual communicators of all sorts at the convention in April, and to learn a bit about some of you here.
