I know I’m one of the faithful members who would go to an AAJA convention even if it was in Detroit. (I did, and had a ball.) But I don’t represent all of you who are choosy about how to spend your hard-earned money and time. So here are five reasons why you should register for the AAJA Convention in New York, Aug. 21-24, before early-bird rates end tomorrow/Tuesday. Rates are $225 for pro members, and $100 for students until end of Tuesday.

Thoughts from AAJA President-elect Paul Cheung on the UNITY name. Friday, Dec. 14, is the last day for AAJA, NAJA, NLGJA and NAHJ to weigh in on a poll regarding UNITY’s name.
He’s right. To be truly diverse, we must create a culture of inclusion.
As a leader who advocates for diverse newsrooms, we must speak up for those who lack a voice, regardless of their gender, race, socio-economic background, ethnicity or sexual identity.
To be truly diverse, we must create a culture of inclusion.
“Unity: Journalists for Diversity” is the most inclusive name.
My passion for diversity is strong.
My commitment to ensure that our industry delivers a complete, fair and representative picture of our communities will not waver.
This is the time for us to listen with an open mind and an open heart.
This is the time for us to embrace our common goals and not be divided by our differences.
This is the time for us to honor our history and build a better tomorrow.
We still have a long road ahead of us, and we must work together. We have a new addition to our family, and, as in any relationship, it needs time to grow.
This is the time for us to stop perpetuating the misconceptions of what broke us up and what will keep us apart.
This is the time for us to show the journalism industry that we are united in the cause of diversifying newsrooms and our news coverage.
I’m not an UNITY board member yet so I don’t have an official vote in this matter. As the incoming AAJA President, it’s important I share with all of you my thoughts.
So, please remember to cast your ballot today and let the UNITY board know what name best represents us!
