Our Next Event

IRTS HALL OF MENTORSHIP DINNER 

The 2016 IRTS HALL OF MENTORSHIP DINNER will take place on Tuesday, November 15 at The Pierre. We invite the industry to embrace the IRTS mission of BUILDING FUTURE MEDIA LEADERS by saluting top leaders of today for extraordinary mentorship.

Now in its fifth year, IRTS President and CEO Joyce Tudryn explains, “Mentorship has always been the centerpiece of the IRTS educational programs and diversity initiatives, yet we traditionally give accolades based on industry achievements. We now proudly honor extraordinary leaders, who inspire us to make a difference through mentoring.  May their examples set some models in motion, and serve as a call for action to all.

Tickets must be reserved and confirmed in advance.  Online reservations are not available for the annual dinner. Please contact Joyce Tudryn at (212) 867-6650, ext. 11. (dial 2 when prompted prior to extension)

Upcoming Programs

2017 Summer Fellowship Program

The Summer Fellowship Program, the most notable student out-reach effort of IRTS, teaches up-and-coming communicators the realities of the business world through an expense-paid fellowship, which includes practical experience and career-planning advice. Each year college juniors, seniors and graduate students are selected nationwide to participate in the nine-week Summer Fellowship Program. Applications open for the 2017 Fellowship in late September!

2017 IRTS Faculty Industry Seminar

In an effort to bridge the gap that can sometimes exist between classroom and industry, IRTS provides an annual opportunity for university educators  to meet with senior media and entertainment executives. It’s an ideal opportunity to discuss the changing nature of our business. The generosity of companies and individuals has made it possible for us to underwrite this unique educational experience for more than four decades. Check back soon for the 2017 Program announcement!
