The Christian Women in Media Association National Conference is where Christian women working in media will gather on April 3-5, 2014 in an annual event to be held at the Doubletree by Hilton in Dallas.

Women professionals in all aspects of media will have the opportunity to participate in a variety of media seminars and workshops and hear top leaders in their field speak. The conference lineup includes Emmy® nominated actress and producer Roma Downey (via video); Dove Award winning singer, songwriter and author Babbie Mason; film critic Ted Baehr who is founder and publisher of MOVIEGUIDE®; speaker and author Thelma Wells; June Hunt, radio host of "Hope for the Heart;" political analyst Carol Swain; best-selling author Karol Ladd; former Armani model-turned-author-and-speaker Jennifer Strickland, and many more.

Baehr will be the keynote speaker at the conference’s Awards Gala on Saturday evening where men and women will be attending. He will also moderate a media seminar entitled, “How to Succeed in Hollywood Without Losing Your Soul.” He will tell attendees what they need to know about the current state of the mass media of entertainment, how to use their faith to change the culture of Hollywood, and how to make a creative contribution to the whole world.
