The TABJ Executive Board will select its Student Representative and announce their selection at the Nov. 12 general body meeting at 1 p.m. at Bennett College for Women.
Students of accredited colleges and universities who want to nominate themselves as candidates for TABJ's Student Representative should email firstname.lastname@example.org by Sunday, Nov. 6, with your (1) name; (2) institution; (3) class; (4) major/concentration; and (5) a brief statement (500 words or less) about why you should represent your peers on the Executive Board.
The Student Representative must be a paid member of TABJ ($15). We expect the Student Representative to be the liaison between the professional members of the Executive Board and students in the area, from that person's school and others. The Student Representative should also participate in scheduled board meetings.
Here are the requirements according to the chapter's by-laws.
The social was a great success with nearly 50 people from the Triangle, Triad and Charlotte chapters attending. Journalists and students represented the News & Record, Winston-Salem Journal, Fox 8, WFMY News 2, WBTV, WSOC-TV, Krispy Kreme, Alamance County Health Department, City of Winston-Salem, U.S. Postal Service, Bennett College for Women and even Winthrop University in Rock Hill, S.C.
Cafe Europa and Bar served delicious food and artist Jim Barnhill presented his exhibit at the African American Atelier. Also, the Triad Association of Black Journalists welcomed a new member. Kathryn Mobley, a senior producer at 88.5 WFDD, joined the group Saturday. The radio station is the NPR news and Triad arts station broadcasting from Wake Forest University.
Check out photos from the event on our Facebook group page.
The NABJ in N.C. Social at 1 p.m. Saturday will now take place at Europa Cafe and Bar at 200 N. Davie St. in downtown Greensboro. We had to change the venue because of circumstances beyond our control.
The event still will start as previously scheduled, include refreshments and conclude with a visit to the African American Atelier, which is in the same building as Europa. The attire remains business casual.
Downtown Greensboro has several free parking options on the weekend. We suggest that you park in the nearby Davie Street Parking Deck at the corner of Friendly Avenue and Davie Street. Find more information at http://downtowngreensboro.net/explore/parking/overview.
We apologize for the late notice and look forward to your participation in the social. This is a rare occasion for black journalists across this state to mingle and learn from one another in a central location. With your help, we can make this event successful and build on that success in the future.
TABJ Executive Board
We appreciate the 12 people who attended the meeting at the Winston-Salem Journal, including new attendees Nicole Ferguson and Kerry Charles, who are both on Fox 8's morning show.
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW:
North Carolina now has three NABJ affiliate chapters serving the Charlotte area (CAABJ), the Triangle (TABJ) and the Triad. It's time to get together to mingle, learn and network with other journalists in the Tar Heel State.
On Oct. 22, the three groups will convene in Greensboro. The afternoon will begin with a light meal at The Palmetto restaurant (223 S. Elm St.). Then the group will visit a sculpture exhibit at the African American Atelier (200 N Davie St.). The attire is business casual.
