Chapter Report

NEW YORK (@aajanewyork): The chapter began 2017 with all-affinity-group panel and networking event at Bloomberg and a Panda Express Lunar New Year event at the Museum of Food and Drink. Building on a similar site visits and panel discussions at Yahoo and Time Inc. last fall, we had a hugely popular Vox Media visit in April, where members got to learn about professional opportunities there. We organized a 360 journalism VR workshop by the CUNY journalism school and a Google Tools for media workshop. Our Trivia Bowl fundraiser took place in June. We also had several social events, including a VOICES mixer and a VOICES info session at CUNY, as well as a student-only networking and meet-up. We’re planning a summer mixer with other affinity groups and a 30th anniversary event for the fall. We expect to award at least a half-dozen stipends for ELP, convention attendance and internships.
