Transcript rofocol an essionaliswi N AB J anoxia. iali ssociaiion o lac ' ournaiists h The National Association of Black Journalists, NABJ, was a group that notably deserved recognition for being a University of Houston Organization. NABJ was a national organization with chapters all over the United States. The University of Houston housed a local chapter with over thirty-five members. "Our main goal was to promote community within the African American fellowship within the School of Communications. We wanted to get more African Americans involved and aware on how to obtain jobs and internships within our community and field," said Tiffany Dean, sophomore, Communications. The only requirements for membership in NABJ were that all members paid a $35.00 annual dues, and that they were communication majors. NABJ held monthly meetings to confirm and reassure that each of the five officers' duties and commitments were fulfilled. The President of NABJ was Tiffany Dean, sophomore, Communications. The Vice President was Ashley Rhodes, sophomore, Communications. The Public Relations Chair was Christina Carter, Junior, Public Relations. The Treasurer was Robyn Cuffee, sophomore, Communications. The group often held bake sales to offset their expenses, as well as raise money. Nationally, NABJ provided Student Education Enrichment & Development Programs, SEED. As part of its commitment to students and aspiring journalists, NABJ provided the following as part of its SEED Program, student memberships, membership applications, and internship programs. NABJ annually awarded summer internships to students committed to journalism careers. Successful candidates were offered paid positions at selected news organizations around the country ranging from small Black-owned weekly newspapers to major market dailies and broadcast outlets," stated NABJ.org. NABJ annually awarded several $2,500 scholarships to African American college students. Any foreign or U.S. student that was a senior in high school or attending an accredited four-year college or university was eligible to compete for the NABJ scholarships. NABJ also encompassed a Student Career Mentoring Program, which matched students and new professionals. The goal was to ensure that the next generation of black journalists succeeds in the newsroom. This yearlong process helped young journalists understand the proper protocol and the culture of the newsroom. —Dixie Ann Dalton Headline Here NABJ Treasurer, sophomore Communications major Robyn Cuffee, sophomore communications major Ashley Rhodes, and junior public relations major Christina Carter look over a proposal for the semester's activities.
