The Asian American Journalists Association (AAJA) has announced that its New York chapter will host its 2013 national convention. The New York AAJA is the largest of 21 chapters, with 1,400 members. The last time the AAJA held their national convention here was in 2000.
“AAJA is sold on the concept of a convention where everything’s only a Metrocard away,” said AAJA National President Doris Truong in a press release. “New York is the city that never sleeps. What’s a better match for today’s 24/7 news culture?”
More details will be revealed in August at the Unity 2012 Journalism Convention in Vegas.
