Now is your chance to volunteer and serve on the NAHJ Washington, D.C. Chapter Board. We are taking nominations now until Friday, May 30th.
We were the first official NAHJ chapter in 2006 and we have thrived for the past 8 years. Our founding chapter president Diana Marrero led our chapter for four years and I am also serving as Chapter President for 4 years. I am not seeking a 5th term.
I have served with an amazing group of chapter board members for the past four years. All of them have planned chapter events and all of them have made decisions in the best interest of our members.
Since I am not running for the chapter board, I will serve as elections chair and verify the candidates. I will not nominate or endorse any candidate.
Here are the Chapter Board positions available:
Support the hiring, promotion and retention of Latino journalists in the news gathering and storytelling process, from entry-level to decision-making positions; and ensure the Latino community is fairly and accurately covered by media organizations in the D.C. metropolitan area.
Objetivos de la organización:
Apoyar la contratación, promoción y la permanencia de periodistas hispanos en todo el proceso de recolección y diseminación de noticias desde el nivel principiante hasta las posiciones de gerencia dentro de todas las organizaciones de noticias; Además, asegurar que la comunidad latina sea representada por los medios de comunicación en el área metropolitana de Washington, D.C. de una manera concisa y acertada.
Please consider running for the chapter board and let’s continue planning amazing events in our nation’s capitol. You can nominate yourself or someone you know by replying to this email.
