AAJA-Asia’s third annual journalism conference in Hong Kong, in association with the Journalism & Media Studies Centre at The University of Hong Kong, is set for May 2013.
We’ve already started planning for the regional event, which in the last two years has gathered more than 100 journalists and experts from all over Asia. But we want to hear from our members and anyone interested in attending.
What is the AAJA-JMSC journalism conference? Anything we want it to be. It’s a forum for the media community in Asia to refine craft and learn from each other. This year we looked at the Apple in China story, mobile journalism, global finance amid Beijing’s leadership change and branding and blogging. In 2011, we discussed the Great Firewall, Japan’s Fukushima crisis, backpack journalism and post J-life.
Please take our short survey to help shape next year’s conference. Who do you want to see as a speaker? What skills do you want to pick up or hone? Tell us!
Also, if you’d like to volunteer for the conference committee, we’ll need help with tasks such as programming, publicity, sponsorship/fundraising and logistics. Please email regional Vice President (Hong Kong) Ramy Inocencio and Chapter Secretary Wendy Tang at email@example.com if you are interested in serving on the committee or have any other input.
Feel free to forward this survey to your networks who may be interested to attend the regional conference.
