Transcript Hispanic Media Association $%fi members $et involved! In the spring semester, the Hispanic Media Association (HMA) toured Channel 13 and got a taste of real media life. Earlier that afternoon, before the members' arrival at the studios, there was an explosion near Highway 288. This offered good experience to the students when they saw behind-the-scenes footage of the live event on the 5 p.m. news. They were able to tour Channel 13 and got to talk to anchor Art Rascon and Blanca Beltran, the associate producer of the Debra Duncan Show and former HMA president. Rascon said, "HMA witnessed the chaos of live coverage where everything is fast paced." Other events that highlighted the year included the first annual UH School of Communication mixer (in which HMA, PRSSA, AAF and IABC participated) at Jillian's. Students networked and interacted with other students in the School of Communication. "Since I've been here in school I haven't seen organizations or students come together like the mixer," said senior Jesse Farias, a print journalism major. Farias said he was not involved in any organizations his junior year and so this year he felt that he needed to participate in clubs and activities around school. For the first time, the organization also took part in other school events such as tailgating with la Comunidad, a community-service organization. President Guadalupe Valencia is proud of this year's group involvement. From 10 members early in the year, HMA grew to 30 active members by the end of the year. "The organization has familiarized itself with the institution," said Valencia. "When there is a strong organization there is a stronger university." The organization serves as an extra curricular activity for media students and helps them meet professionals in the field. -Jacqueline Gil "Wow, Just the leaders* HMA officers and seniors Maria Corrales, Lupi Valencia, Gus Serrano, and Tamara Riddle all pose for an "officer group shot" at the first Annual SOC mixer in Fall of 2001. The mixer took place at Jillian's on November 29. Photo courtesy of HMA Opportunity knocks! HMA members listen intently and take detailed notes as Public Affairs Director Anna Nunez from El Dorado Communications tells them about job opportunities in the media. Members had multiple opportunities throughout the year to listen to guest speakers who provided them with a lot of valuable information for the future.

Lupi Valencia and Josh Willoughby, both senior media productions majors, pick up the fundraiser money that accidentally fell out of the bag as they were trying to count it. Like most other organizations, HMA was always doing things to raise money. In the fall they held a bake sale. Photo courtesy of HMA 'Gather round ail!" HMA members get together for a memorable photograph with Joann Zuniga from the Houston Chronicle and Anna Nunez from El Dorado Communications. Members had many occasions on which they got to meet other people who were already quite successful in the media world. This gave HMA members a chance to ask important questions and find out more about their major and field of interest. Photo courtesy of HMA Organizations Hispanic Media Association \JLo3,
