MCA-I North Jersey presents:
JAMIE XV’s SHOW AND TELL!
Tuesday, April 15 at 6:30 at Sony Electronics
(RSVP now and reserve the date – get your taxes done early and be there!)
For each of the past 15 years, MCA-I’s North Jersey and Princeton chapters present The JAMIEs – Jersey Awards for Media Innovation and Excellence. And each year, after the event, MCA-I North Jersey presents the “Show and Tell,” where selected winners present and discuss longer portions of the programs that won the prizes.
This very popular and well-attended chapter meeting gives you an opportunity to ask questions, learn the “story behind the story,” find out the who – and why – of decision-making, and see what it takes to put one of those beautiful green marble JAMIE obelisks in your own trophy cabinet!
The event will be at SONY’s headquarters, 1 Sony Drive, Park Ridge, NJ. Food and beverages will be provided courtesy of Sony. Directions are below.
PLEASE RSVP FOR THIS EVENT BY MONDAY, APRIL 14. This has been requested by Sony security. Please e-mail your RSVP to email@example.com (preferred method) or by telephone to Chapter VP Andy Wander at 201-365-0865. As always, admission for all MCA-I members is free; for visitors, only $10.00.
