The 10th Annual Christian Women in Media (CWIMA) National Conference will be taking place April 3-5, 2014 in Dallas. Women from across the nation who work in the fields of media and entertainment will benefit from the educational media seminars, inspiring keynote sessions and uplifting music at this conference. Some attendees come from the 5 CWIMA Regional Connection cities of Dallas, Nashville, New York, Minneapolis and Hollywood or the 12 CWIMA Local Networks across the countryn but there are also those who will be attending their first-ever CWIMA event. All women are invited who impact our culture in media, entertainment and leadership. They do not need to be a member to attend.
There are many speakers scheduled for the key morning sessions as well as the evening events. Just a few of those scheduled to speak or sing are Babbie Mason, Carol Swain, June Hunt, Thelma Wells, Jennifer Strickland, Karol Ladd, Amani Mostafa, and Erica Lane. There will be morning sessions filled with prayer, worship, reports, inspiration, and encouragement. The nights will be a time of food, fellowship, music, laughter, and the ever-popular "Jeans and Bling" event for down-home, good ol' fashioned Texas fun.
The afternoon Educational Media Seminars are varied to suit the needs of the many professions these ladies are directly connected with, yet most are not narrowly defined to one area only. The seminar moderators are seasoned people who have achieved successful positions in their respective fields. Most of the seminars this year also have a panel of experts who lend their voice and expertise to the discussion. Those attending the conference can choose 2 seminars per afternoon for a total of four.
The grand finale of the conference is the National Media Awards Gala. Previous recipients of this award include Jennifer O’Neil, Actress, Author. Kay Arthur - Precept Ministries International, Janet Parshall – In the Market, Joni Eareckson Tada - Joni & Friends, Shirley Rose Aspiring Women, Vonette Bright - Women Today, Campus Crusade, June Hunt - Hope for the Heart, Anne Graham Lotz - Angel Ministries, Terry Meeuwsen - 700 Club, Joni Lamb - Daystar, Thelma Wells - A Woman of God Ministries, Carol Cymbala – Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir. Carol Swain - Political Analyst & Host of Be the People
This year's honorees are Roma Downey (Son of God, The Bible miniseries), who will accept her Excellence in Communications Award for Films and Television via video and multi-award winning singer, Babbie Mason, who will receive the Excellence in Communications Award for Music. Mason will also be singing during the gala. The keynote speaker is well-known movie critic and founder of Movieguide, Ted Baehr.
