Excellence In Journalism 2013

Newsmaker Luncheon sponsored by ESPN, ABC News and Fusion
The Excellence In Journalism (EIJ13) national conference was a great success. I am eternally grateful to the Radio Television Digital News Association (RTDNA) and Society of Professional Journalists (SPJ) for inviting NAHJ to join them at the event. It was a wonderful way to celebrate a year that has seen much growth for our association.

As I walked the conference, it was great to see so many NAHJ members networking, getting training, participating in sessions and celebrating. Members genuinely having a good time supporting each other. And that’s what has stayed with me the most. The national board, staff, volunteers have worked very hard to help lift NAHJ to greater heights.

There were also many “firsts” at this year’s convention, including the presentation of the first “Si Se Puede Excellence in Leadership” awards recognizing the hard work of NAHJ's local chapters.

We all have much to be proud of. NAHJ is helping members find jobs, producing high quality programming, championing causes for journalists and the community we serve and represent. The national board is nurturing relationships with local chapter leaders to better serve members year round.

NAHJ is in good financial standing, strengthening partnerships with sponsors and making new ones in achieving mutual goals.

Yes, there is much to be proud of.
