Media Mix is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to serving advertising buyers, planners and sellers in the Greater Kansas City area. We promote high professional standards in the media community, provide leadership for those entering the field and are a primary channel for networking among our members.
Our mission is to provide opportunities for personal and professional enrichment. Annual programs include TV Premier Day, Lunch and Learns and Social Happy Hours. Our annual Awards Banquet, held each year in June, recognizes outstanding performers in our community. It’s “the” event of the year! Hosting a summer charity golf tournament and sports auction has now become part of our culture.
The best part of being a part a Media Mix member is our charity contributions. Our organization is 100% volunteer ran, so all proceeds go directly to our charity, St. Vincent’s Operation Breakthrough.
Way back in the day, we were created as a part of the national organization, American Women in Radio and Television. In the early 80’s it was decided that we wanted to be more inclusive and add males and agency people to our mix. Our name was changed to KCMP, Kansas City Media Professionals. Later in the early 2000’s we decided to merge with Ad Club and became as we are known now, Media Mix of Kansas City.
We have contributed thousands of dollars over the years. Our annual golf tournament/sports auction is the primary source of our contributions to St. Vincent’s. Some proceeds from the annual Awards Banquet are also contributed. In addition to a 15-passenger van donated in November 2004 and a $12,000 cash donation to be used for new playground equipment, in November 2005 we contributed $12,000 to finish one of the special education rooms in their new facility. With the generosity of membership we have been able to donate a minimum of $10,000 annually.
