UPDATE: We are so thrilled that so many members want to attend our Chapter Mixer and Membership Drive. We reached capacity. Those who made the list will get an email. Those who are on the waiting-list will also get an email. If you RSVP please ensure your membership is current. You can renew on Sunday. Remember the NAHJ membership special is $50. The chapter does not have a separate chapter fee.
The NAHJ D.C. Chapter Board declared the Chapter Mixer and Membership Drive a private event. So there will not be any media availability for our special guests: San Antonio Mayor Julián Castro and Telemundo Anchor José Díaz-Balart. The Chapter will release pictures, video, and a write-up on our website as we usually do with our events. If you would like a one-on-one interview with our special guests, we suggest to contact their office directly.
We are pleased to announce San Antonio Mayor, Julián Castro, and Telemundo Anchor, José Diaz-Balart, will make special appearances at our chapter mixer and membership drive on Sunday, January 20, 2013 from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm.
NAHJ DC Member Carolyn Brown will host our mixer at her home in the Palisades neighborhood. Come eat mini-barbecue sandwiches, macaroni and cheese, and Texas cornbread-pudding from Rocklands BBQ. Come mingle with the top journalists in our region while enjoying a glass of wine. The mixer is free and open to NAHJ members and guests.
Please RSVP by Friday, January 18 at 5:00 PM. You can RSVP by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Your confirmation will include Carolyn’s address.
Right now, members can join or renew their professional membership for $50. The student rate is $20. The special membership rate ends January 31, 2013. The rate will go back to $75 February 1. Please check the Washington, D.C. Chapter Box when you join. This is important so you can vote in chapter elections and your name will appear on our chapter list. We do not charge a separate Chapter Membership fee. All of our members are members of the National Association of Hispanic Journalists. More here.
