Despite the pandemic, AAJA Philly is in a great spot: We have generous funding from the Lenfest Institute for programming and professional development, and 2020 is our 25th anniversary as a chapter. If you have ideas for what our chapter can do, please considering running for a board position! I promise it’s not scary and you’ll be able to make a difference.
Voting will occur from Friday, Oct. 23, through Friday, Oct. 30. More details to come.
