REFRESH. REPOSITION. REIMAGINE: A NEW NABJ CONSTITUTION
NABJ Membership to Vote on New Governing Document Recommended by Constitutional Commission
Fifteen-member group proposes significant changes related to membership categories and continuity of leadership
A constitutional commission is recommending that members of the National Association of Black Journalists vote to significantly update the organization’s primary governing document – to one that would better position NABJ and its members to succeed and serve others in the future.
If adopted via a special election this summer, the proposed NABJ constitution would retain the association’s mission and values and, with 3,100 members, preserve it as the largest organization for journalists of color. It would, however, among other things, provide for new membership opportunities and better continuity of leadership.
The NABJ Board of Directors and the NABJ Constitutional Commission invite you to peruse all the information provided on this microsite concerning the proposed NABJ constitutional amendment – and then to cast your vote. The results will be announced, soon after the polls close on August 1, at the NABJ Convention and Career Fair in Boston. We thank you for your consideration and participation.
A news release about the commission’s work and the constitutional amendment can be found here.
