Last night, the NABJ Digital Journalism Task Force held an online webinar for VP-Print candidates Denise Clay and Errin Haines. Our questioners were Eric Deggans of the St. Petersburg Times, Natalie McNeal of Frugalista and DJTF Treasurer Melanie Eversley of USA Today.
We discussed general NABJ topics including the UNITY split, an alleged disconnect between NABJ national and local chapters and the association’s current guidelines for membership. We also discussed digital journalism issues. You can hear the hour-long session here. DJTF held a similar forum for the presidential candidates, and you can listen to that session here.
The Tampa Bay Association of Black Journalists held their presidential candidates forum June 4, and you can view it below:
Voting for the 2011 elections is now open. I urge you all to review these materials from the candidates, which will allow you to make the best choice of the leadership that will move NABJ forward.
