Chapter President: 2012 Year End Report

Chapter President

NAHJ DC Members,

Over the past year, we have been a very active chapter.

We met newsroom leaders at The Washington Post, Telemundo Washington Bureau, NBC Latino, Scripps-Howard Washington Bureau, and WUSA-TV/ 9News Now. We also met with members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus at the U.S. Capitol.

Several members took advantage of our chapter workshop series. More than a dozen members participated in our Spanish Language Writing workshop at Univision Noticias DC. Another dozen or so members learned about radio storytelling at NPR.

We held our first chapter fundraiser in three years “Una Noche con Periodistas” at the home of Ray Suarez from PBS NewsHour and it was a great success.

We established the Charlie Ericksen Internship Supplement to help Washington interns get around town. We paid the registration for two members to attend the Unity Convention in Las Vegas.

We began the year with $5,766.09 in our account. With the help of all our active members, we ended the year with $8,279.11.

Thank you for making 2012 a great year. We look forward to 2013.
