He got to know really great people and got a chance to be part of history when the writer’s strike happened in LA, which allowed

him to connect with some writers. Upon graduation Robert wants to go to film school somewhere which is in the works as we speak! One thing that you might now know about Robert is that he recently got his certificate in Screenwriting for Television and Film from MSU this past summer.

Hello Everyone!!

It’s finally starting to feel like Fall outside! We hope everyone had a great weekend and is off to a

good start this week. Homework is probably starting to pile up but hopefully everyone has some free

time to enjoy EMA events this week!

Meeting This Week

We are having our next meeting this week on Wednesday, Sept. 17th

at 5 p.m. in Glass 102. Come

and hear what information your leaders have to share this week. There will be important information

about the Super Bowl and potential fundraising & service opportunities. Also, the Industry Reps will

have updated information about their specific sectors to share with members. We will have free food

and this will be another great time to get to know other members and the leaders. Hope to see you

there!

BBQ Social

Don’t forget about the EMA BBQ Social this week. It will be held

this Thursday, Sept. 18th

from 5-8 p.m. at Phelps Grove Park. Hamburgers, hot

dogs, drinks, and snacks will be provided. Feel free to bring snacks to share and

also bring some friends! Hopefully the weather will hold up for us and we can enjoy

spending some time together outside of school.

Reminder: In order to be eligible for trips, tours, and events you must apply for membership online

through the EMA Facebook Webpage or Blackboard and pay your dues by Tuesday, October 14th

teams and start planning more events for EMA. Also, students in Dr. Rothschild’s class will get 3 extra

credit points for every event they attend and 1 extra credit point for chalking before meetings, but

you must be a paying member in order to get the points.

Member Spotlight: Shanna Mott is a senior and an Entertainment

Management major. She is originally from Tulsa, Oklahoma. She is most

excited about developing the music industry side of EMA and further

developing her leadership skills through serving as the Music Industry Rep

for EMA. Her favorite EMA memory was her trip to New York last spring

for the MEISA (Music & Entertainment Industry Student Association)

conference. Something interesting about Shanna is that she is Native

American, more specifically Cherokee. Currently she is working as a

stagehand at Juanita K. Hammons Hall and with Lemon Drop Records to

build experience in the music industry. She also helped develop a MEISA

student chapter here at MSU. She plans on interning at a venue, either at

the House of Blues or back home in Tulsa. If you’re interested in the music

side of entertainment, Shanna is definitely your go-to person! Be sure to

say hello to her at the meeting this Wednesday.

Hello EMA Members & Friends!

Hello Everyone!!

The third week of classes are well on their way and hopefully everyone is getting back into the swing

of things here at Missouri State. Last week’s meeting was a great success!! We were excited to see

all of the new people interested in EMA and ready to learn about what we have to offer this year.

There was a lot of information discussed, so if you have any questions please contact a leader and

stay in the loop about what EMA is doing. Also, if you were not able to come to the meeting, check

out the PowerPoints located on Blackboard.

Rain, Rain, Go Away!

We apologize for the short notice of the BBQ Social cancellation. We were holding out, hoping the

weather would clear up, but it definitely wasn’t a nice enough day to grill out. We are planning on

rescheduling the BBQ for Thursday, Sept. 18th

from 5-8 p.m. at Phelps Grove Park. Hamburgers, hot

dogs, and beverages will be provided. Please feel free to bring any snacks to share. Hopefully the

weather will be nice and we can enjoy hanging out and meeting new friends.

Next Meeting

Our next meeting will be held on Wednesday, Sept. 17th

at 5 p.m. in Glass 102. Your leaders will have

more opportunities available for fundraising and service events, as well as updated information for

the national tour to San Francisco, California that will be held over Fall Break. Be sure to attend to

stay up to date on the latest information from EMA. There will be free food and beverages provided.

Member Spotlight: Cassie Alsbach is from Festus, MO and is a senior

graduating this May with her Entertainment Management degree. She is

currently the Event Industry Representative for EMA and is excited about

finding opportunities within the event industry that she can share with

fellow students. She is also working as Dr. Rothschild’s Student Assistant

and will serve as a great resource for students who have questions about

EM classes and internships. Cassie is looking forward to attending Pollstar

in the spring so she can network with industry professionals and gain more

experience in the field. This summer she worked as the Marketing and Box

Office Intern at the Family Arena in St. Charles, MO. Something interesting

about Cassie is that she recently found out that she will be her sister’s

maid of honor in January, which she is very excited about! Be sure to stop

by and say hello to Cassie at the next EMA event.
