NAHJ Los Angeles Chapter Meeting
The National Association of Hispanic Journalists (NAHJ) enjoys the leadership of very talented and committed members from across the country. The Los Angeles chapter is a great example of this inspiring direction.
I had the good fortune to be a guest at this week's board meeting at California State University, Northridge (CSUN) where Naomi Ogaldez, CSUN Latino Journalists Co-Chair shared their success stories like job placements for graduates. They also discussed fundraising to assist students who wish to attend NAHJ's Excellence In Journalism national conference.
Community leaders like Armando Gudino with the Drug Policy Alliance were also in attendance. Mr. Gudino congratulated NAHJ's leadership in supporting and empowering journalists and students across the country.
He offered his assistance in helping NAHJ members better inform our community.
I am impressed with the discussion chapter president Cesar Arredondo led. The board discussed producing future panel programs that focused on the violence journalists continue to deal with in Mexico, fundraising strategies and networking events with like kind organizations.
A warm thank you to the members of the L.A. chapter for making me feel right at home.
