2010 membership drive a great success

Posted on by sbhatt

Thanks to great organizing and outreach by our AAJA Seattle board and volunteers, we ended our 2010 membership drive on March 31 with 87 members! Last year we had 83 members. This growth is truly an accomplishment, especially at a time when organizations like ours are struggling to maintain their membership levels.

I expect membership will tick up further as the National Convention in Los Angeles approaches. Early bird registration deadline is April 16!

To join or renew, visit AAJA’s membership page. Don’t forget to follow us on Twitter (@aajaseattle) and on Facebook.

We have events every month and fellowships and scholarships to support your career goals. We also have an incredible community; just come to one of our events and see for yourself. We are always open to your feedback and ideas.

Here is a list of our 2010 members as of March 31. Thanks again for supporting AAJA’s mission and our chapter!
