    Hello EMA Members & Friends!

    Hello Everyone!!

    It was a beautiful weekend and we hope everyone was able to get outside and enjoy the

    warmer weather! Dont forget that the deadline for payment & membership

    applications is TODAY! In order to be eligible for funding for trips, tours, &

    socials, you must pay your dues and fill out an online application today. If you

    have any questions, please contact an EMA leader. St. Patricks Day is also right

    around the corner followed by Spring Break, so enjoy the next few weeks and

    hope for more nice weather!

    Next EMA Meeting: The next EMA meeting will be held next Wednesday, March 18th at 5

    p.m. in Glass 102. Leader nominations will be held, so make sure to talk to current leaders if

    you are interested in taking a position next year. Elections will follow after Spring Break.

    Event Spotlight: Broomball Social

    The first official EMA social of the semester will be held on

    Wednesday, March 18th from 10 p.m.-12 a.m. We will be

    playing broomball at Mediacom Ice Park, similar to hockey

    only there are no ice skates and you use a broom and ball to

    try and score against the opposing team. Cost is still to be

    determined and depends on how many people sign up. The

    more people that go, the cheaper it will be for everyone! So

    bring as many friends as you would like. If you have any

    questions or would like to go, contact Matt Bosslet, EMA

    Vice President, at Bosslet773@missouristate.edu.

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

    membership online at http://theemlife.com or the EMA Facebook webpage and pay your

    dues by Monday, March 9th, 2009. Dues for new members are $35 (which includes an EMA

    polo) and returning members are $20 per semester. Payments are now ONLY accepted

    online at the EMA Facebook webpage, for questions about payment, contact Zack Larsen at

    Larsen1230@missouristate.edu. Also, students in Dr. Rothschilds 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: Anthony Miller is a senior Entertainment

    Management Major focusing on Music Management. He hopes

    to move to California after graduating and find a job doing

    anything in the music industry. Eventually Anthony wants to

    manage his own music career, have his own recording studio

    and production company. His favorite EMA event so far was the

    Super Bowl in Tampa and he is most looking forward to going to

    more of the socials and volunteer events this semester.

    Anthony was formerly in a band for two years and will be doing

    an internship for Q102 radio here in Springfield this summer.

    Something you might not know about Anthony is that his first

    and second airplane rides were during the Super Bowl Trip! Fav quote: "All men dream, but

    not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day

    to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act

    on their dreams with open eyes, to make them possible"-Thomas E. Lawrence. Say HI to

    Anthony at the next EMA event!

    main event days. It will be held at Hammons Student Center

    on the MSU campus. The OSEF is a regional competition

    projects in science or engineering. An average of 750

    students will come out to the fair from 16 different counties

    throughout the area and get the chance to work with local scientists and professionals. For

    more information or to volunteer for the event, contact Scott Keuss at

    Keuss797@missouristate.edu.

    Member Spotlight: Kristi Hillyard is an Entertainment Management

    major emphasizing in Event Management and she will graduate this

    December. She is originally from St. Louis and hopes to land a career

    in event planning after graduation. Kristis not sure what types of

    events she wants to plan yet, but hopes to make good money! Her

    favorite thing in EMA so far was the Super Bowl trip. It was an

    experience she will never forget and cannot wait until next year.

    Kristi has an internship this summer with Missouri Sports Hall of

    Fame and will work with three other interns in planning the Price

    Cutter Charity Championship, part of the Nationwide PGA tour. She

    is looking forward to any upcoming socials and the Super Bowl next

    year. Kristis words of advice: Continue to learn as much as you can

    about the industry you are going into and always keep an open

    mind. Say HI to Kristi at the next EMA event!
