Press Release Summary: AWC South Florida kicks off networking social at Kefi in

Press Release Body: January 16, 2008- Miami, FL-The Association for Women in
Communications South Florida Chapter will host Connecting at Kefi, a stylish
networking event to kick off its new, revamped structure and plans aimed at reaching
out all segments of the Palm Beach, Broward and Miami-Dade communities and better
serve the needs of women communicators in our region. Guests will enjoy free
martinis and appetizers while making new business connections and enjoying a relaxed
ambiance. The event will take place on Thursday, January 31 at Kefi- located at
18851 NE 29th Avenue, Suite 102, Aventura- from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Admission is $10
for members and $20 for non-members. Student pricing is $5. There will also be
raffles and discounted restaurant prices for the night, courtesy of Kefi. Guests are
requested to RSVP by Monday, January 28 to Tonya Scholz.

By hosting this social gathering the Chapter is kicking off its plans to take South
Florida by storm by offering women communicators across the region a new and dynamic
space to network, acquire new skills, learn, and achieve their professional goals
whatever those might be. The Chapter has laid out an aggressive events calendar for
the year 2008 in order to serve the needs of its audience and help them become part
of our community\'s business matrix competitively. Connecting at Kefi serves also as
a call for women communicators to learn about the organization and become involved
taking their own careers to the next level.

In order to achieve its aggressive goals for the year 2008, the Association For
Women in Communications South Florida Chapter also announced a change in its
leadership structure by adding the position of Co-President. Traditionally, the
Chapter has operated heavily in Broward County. While Tonya Scholz, the Chapter\'s
President, will be leading all Broward/Palm Beach initiatives, a Miami-based
Co-President, Carolina Schwarz, will be conducting outreach throughout Dade. This
change responds to an urgent need to reach out to our Miami-Dade constituency in a
bid to incorporate all the segments of our community and achieve the goals of
growing the Chapter, branding the Association throughout South Florida, and
conducting heavy fundraising and promotions, thus becoming a national leader. Other
goals for the year include the creation of two scholarships for the FIU AWC student
chapter and raising the funds to cover the costs for two students to attend the
national conference in Seattle, thus giving student members the necessary tools to
help them become successful communications professionals.

The Association for Women in Communications is a professional organization that
champions the advancement of women across all communications disciplines by
recognizing excellence, promoting leadership and positioning its members at the
forefront of the evolving communications era. AWC is committed to work nationally
and internationally for pay equity for women in the communications workplace and for
freedom of information. For more information, visit or
