New York Chapter

The New York Chapter was formed to connect and support members, as well as to provide a much needed voice in the local journalism community. While striving to meet the needs of this unique community, your chapter officers always appreciate your feedback and participation. Don't hesitate to let your chapter president know what kinds of programs and activities you would like to see in the future.

I hope to see you next week at the same NLGJA time and the same great location but as per request on a whole new night. It is a chance to catch up with old friends, meet some new ones and network. It has been awhile let's have a ball together this fall.
