Does UNITY matter for AAJA Seattle? Yes!
Also from Sharon: The net revenue from the UNITY convention is split based on how many members register for the convention from each alliance (AAJA, NAHJ, NAJA and NLGJA). So the more AAJA members we get to register, the bigger the pot that AAJA gets. That revenue goes to AAJA national, but the Seattle chapter has a vested interest in keeping the national organization as healthy as possible so national won’t have to assess our chapter again.
