In the college basketball world, this month is known as March Madness. But for those of us who work in media, communications, marketing, or public relations, every month includes some sort of madness. That's why it is great to have an organization like the Charlotte Area Association of Black Journalists (CAABJ) that helps you network and build relationships with others who can relate to the demands and joys of our profession.
We truly thank all of you who came out to our CIAA mixer last week at Tutto Mondo. We had a great turnout and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves. We hope you will consider joining our great organization. CAABJ is only as great as its members.
We're off to a great start this year and we want to continue to build on that momentum. Please join us at our next meeting:
CAABJ General Body Meeting
Thursday, March 20
1520 South Blvd. (South End)
*UPDATE 3-16-08: THIS IS A NEW LOCATION FROM PREVIOUS BLOG POST
If you aren't familiar with CAABJ (an affiliate chapter of the National Association of Black Journalists), come to the meeting to see what we're all about. Our members represent nearly 15 newspapers, magazines, television and radio stations in the Charlotte area. Not only is that number growing, but our membership also includes a number of PR and corporate communications professionals.
Who's better connected than us?
We look forward to seeing you March 20.
The Charlotte Area Association of Black Journalists (CAABJ) is an affiliate chapter of the National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ), a nonprofit organization focused on establishing strong ties among African-Americans working in the media and expanding and balancing the media's coverage of the African-American community and experience.
