New Year and New Goals for CAABJ

More convenient and more rewarding.
The Charlotte Area Association of Black Journalists is starting the new year with new goals and a new outlook and we hope you’ll join us!

Last year the CAABJ got off to a running start.
Here are just a few of the events you might have missed last year:
A media access workshop at UNC Charlotte, more than 100 in attendance
Professional development sessions on various topics including, covering education, working with law enforcement agencies on stories and on finding journalism fellowships
Race and the Media forum, with a panel that included Senator Malcolm Graham and former Mayor Pro-Tem Patrick Cannon
Social Mixers at Fox and Hound & Tutto Mondo

Don’t miss out this year! We’re planning on bringing back the programs that worked well and adding more events to give you a chance to get involved.

Our new executive board is in place, and we’re excited! We hope you can get excited about CAABJ, too. Our first meeting of the year is planned for Tuesday, January 30th at 7pm at the Dilworth Neighborhood Grill at 911 E. Morehead Street. Please join us for food and new opportunities with CAABJ.

If you have any questions, feel free to email us at or you can contact any of the new board members.

Thanks, and welcome to a new year and a new start for the CAABJ!
