HRTS Associates Update!
HRTS Associates is the newest tier of HRTS
membership serving rising executives in all areas of the industry. Not to be confused with the Junior HRTS, HRTS Associates is a subset of HRTS that satisfies a long-standing demand for an accessible, affordable level of membership that provides networking, educational, and mentorship opportunities for mid-level agents, managers, and executives. Co-Presidents Lauren Michal and Meredith Willis and their Board of Associates are pleased to announce that the HRTS Associates has hit 100 members in the first seven months of its inception!
HRTS Associates members – some of whom migrated from HRTS and others who graduated from JHRTS – have enjoyed a plethora of programming since the membership’s launch in May 2016. Beginning with a mixer to meet the Associates, events consisted of roundtables addressing topics that are relative to what executives in the middle of their professional journey may experience. These include areas such as how to change careers within entertainment, what are notable legal and business trends within new media, and what to expect if you are fired.
The HRTS Associates have stayed true to their initial mission statement of providing more regular and intimate events. Whether discussing current programming, ratings, the digital landscape or otherwise, Associates members can expect to encounter a safe environment in which to learn and meet one another. They are actively participating in HRTS’s highly-recognized mentorship program and are initiating a "pen pal” networking program with the newly-formed New York Associates membership tier to collaborate with their East Coast peers.
