The three-day convention includes plenary sessions, panel workshops, seminars, and other activities with interactive discussions about industry and community issues. The convention’s career fair features news and media companies, universities and journalism industry services, along with one-on-one critiques with veteran journalists and other opportunities for professional and student journalists.

“On behalf of the New York chapter, we are delighted and proud to host the convention in 2013,” said convention co-chairs Brooke Camp, NBCUniversal Talent Acquisition Lead, News and Digital, and Michelle Yu, SNY (SportsNet New York) Anchor. “We are excited to marshall the city’s resources and energy to make this a fantastic opportunity and event for all.”

This year’s 2013 AAJA National Convention will be a year to remember.
