Even in this economy, I would not miss the annual JAWS meeting. This group not only provides education, information and mentoring to members, it also keeps me up to date on issues and opportunities within the industry. It gives us training that helps us do our jobs better and allows us to learn practical dos and don'ts from people who have done it all. I put together my first video online at JAWS, loaded up my tweetdeck and started a Facebook page.

Journalism and Women Symposium introduced me to some great friends, who offer support, job leads and wonderful camaraderie. This organization offers a variety of training opportunities, a great e-mail list and an annual conference that is second to none!

I just joined JAWS last fall and have already benefited from the interesting and relevant discussions on the listserv.

Even though I'm a retiree, this organization has kept me informed about the progress of women journalists and has given all of us, from students to retirees, a voice. We have contacts with the most knowledgeable people in our profession and can learn continually.

As a young journalist, JAWS gave me a fellowship to attend the annual symposium, where I made invaluable connections in my field. I have been a member of other professional journalism organizations, like SPJ, but have found JAWS to be the most nurturing of young talent, and the fastest to adapt to the changing media landscape.
