It's that time again to come together as Chapter Presidents and Chapter Leaders to learn and network!
On Wednesday, Aug. 3, NABJ Chapter Day 2011 will take place during the
36th Annual NABJ Convention in Philadelphia. We encourage you to share this with other chapter officers/board members
so that they too can learn the ins and outs of running a successful
chapter. As we do every year, we are looking forward to great dialogue
and a chance for you to meet your fellow presidents and chapter leaders.
Please note: Exact room for Chapter Day will be forwarded to attendants.
Regional Caucuses also are being held on Aug. 3 from 3-5 p.m. Check
schedule for exact location.
Please RSVP at
If you have questions, please email NABJ Council of Presidents Chair Michelle Fitzhugh-Craig at email@example.com.
