AAJA Seattle has partnered with fellow journalists at the Canadian Broadcasting Corp., Vancouver Sun, and University of British Columbia journalism school to bring you a historic meetup on Sept. 18 and 19 in the city that will host the 2010 Winter Olympics.
The purpose of the meeting is to bring together AAJA members from Portland and Seattle and peers in Vancouver who are interested in diversity in journalism.
While we’re there, we plan to tour newsrooms, meet members of the mainstream and ethnic media and participate in a workshop hosted by UBC’s journalism school. A meetup of journalists wouldn’t be complete without a few drinks at a bar after work, so be sure to check back for details on evening excursions.
HOTELS: Once we have an idea of how many people are committed to attending, we can see if a group discount is in order and help coordinate carpools.
PLEASE RSVP no later than Monday, August 24, if you’re seriously interested in attending. Send an email to email@example.com with “Vancouver” in the subject line. Thank you.
