The San Antonio Professional Chapter’s first Publicity Clinic took place October 11, 1949 at Municipal Auditorium. Approximately 160 people attended to learn how to get their organizations’ activities into print. Now known as the Media Workshop for Non-Profits is held in March on odd-numbered years.
The first Matrix Table Dinner was held in 1952 “to salute those gracious and capable women who have been our headliners” and to raise money for scholarships and other projects. Now, the San Antonio Professional Chapter hosts the annual Headliner Awards celebration in June. The Headliner Awards honor excellence in education, professional achievement, public endeavor, volunteer service, and service to AWC.
For the past several decades, AWC has partnered with San Antonio College to host Meet the Pros where students have the chance to meet professionals in a variety of communication fields to learn about opportunities within the industry. The pros come from television, radio, print media, marketing and event planning to name just a few. It is always a popular event!
