On Friday, March 8, 2013 CNN and Time Warner sponsored a networking reception at the Time Warner Cente. It provided NAHJ members an opportunity to catch up with each other as well as make new friends and network with top media professionals.

Saturday’s conference at the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism was made possible by the team effort of a group of dedicated Region 2 volunteers who worked hard on logistics and programming. With a focus on journalism, the offerings include sessions on social media, marketing and entrepreneurship.

Just as the horizon brightens for Latino journalists, opportunities for U.S. Latinos all over the country are growing higher than the city’s famous skyscrapers.

The Latino community is driving the country’s population and economic growth, and influencing social and economic issues that impact all citizens of the United States. This is why NAHJ champions and nurtures the study and practice of journalism and communications.

La NAHJ les da las gracias a nuestro auspiciadorers General Motors, la aerolinea United, la Universidad de la Ciudad de Nueva York, CNN, Time Warner, Fox News Latino, CBS y ESPN por su apoyo en este evento que sirve como uno de los muchos ejemplos de su dedicacion a la comunidad Latina.

NAHJ is an advocate for the fair and accurate coverage of the Latino community, and we urge newsgathering companies to fill their ranks with more Latino journalists.

This conference is testament of our association’s commitment to the members and the community they represent and serve.
