About Washington, D.C.

The Washington, D.C. chapter, despite being one of the largest markets in the nation, remains a close-knit group that works and plays well with others. Professional development is a key mission in the city of professionals, and every year the chapter plays an important role in coordinating the D.C. Journalism Job Fair, which attracts the largest news organizations in the nation to pick from a talent pool of incredibly smart and ambitious journalists. We offer stipends for professional development, including for the annual AAJA convention. Our annual trivial bowl has always been a great success and something journalists across the spectrum look forward to.
