Forging The Future, NAHJ Region 4 Conference

Networking reception
Congratulations to the NAHJ South Florida chapter for producing the wonderful Region 4 conference, Forging the Future. The event drew nearly 250 registrants! The highest number of attendees for any regional conference to date.

Forging the Future reminded me of my late abuelita. Like many of our grandmothers she was a master chef en la cocina. One of her specialties was what she called “sopa de familia.” The secret recipe wasn’t the ingredients, but the people who contributed to the cooking. My sister and I would be responsible for chopping carrots and potatoes. My mother and aunts would add the chicken or meat, onions and of course spices. Mi abuelita would never make soup unless everyone in the house did their part. You know, it always tasted better when we worked at it together.
On-site registration
The South Florida conference is a soup of success the local chapter working with the national leadership and staff. The partnership with the Society of Professional Journalists, South Florida chapter. The panelists, sponsors and of course the many members and guests who participated.

Sessions underway
I was happy to receive all of the great feedback from grateful members who shared how productive the conference was for their careers. A special thank you to our partners from the Society of Professional Journalists, South Florida chapter and sponsors General Motors, Toyota, Sprint, WSVN and The Miami Herald.
