#AAJA24 Updates: Pitch form open, join the Programming Committee!

Join the Convention Planning Committee, pitch speakers, programs


AAJA Family, we know it’s early in the year, but we’re already excited for #AAJA24 in August! As we ramp up our preparations, we invite you to share ideas with us — from speakers to sessions or even getting involved with our Convention Programming Committee. 

Pitch speakers and programs

Gathering in Austin will be an opportunity to engage with hot-button issues shaping Texas, which boasts a rapidly growing Asian American and Pacific Islander population. Austin is also home to numerous news organizations, which are already gearing up for the election year. What speakers, topics and workshops do you want to see at #AAJA24? What important issues do you think journalists should be talking about, and what skills and tools do you want to learn at the convention? Share your ideas for speakers or topics with us by Monday, Feb. 12 at 11:59 p.m. PST.

Learn about 2023 CPC member June Kim’s experience: Joining the committee is a great opportunity to contribute to the AAJA community. My first AAJA convention experience was so great that I decided to become part of the CPC on the next one. Throughout the planning period, you get to work alongside and build relationships with talented organizers dedicated to making the convention as inclusive and impactful as possible. I would 100% recommend it to anyone seeking meaningful involvement with AAJA behind the scenes.

Apply to join the Convention Programming Committee by Monday, Feb. 5 at 11:59 p.m. PST. We can’t wait to hear from you and see #AAJA24 come to life with the spirit of our community. 

AAJA’s 2024 convention will be in Austin, Texas, from August 7 to 11, 2024. Our annual convention brings together the AAJA community, provides opportunities to meet with recruiters, fosters learning through our carefully crafted lineup of panels and workshops, and allows for collective reflection on AAPI representation, leadership and ownership within the field of journalism. We look forward to welcoming our #AAJAFamily, from the ones who have been with us since 1981, to those who have joined within the past year, for an illuminating week of conversations, community and skills-building.

*The health and well-being of AAJA members and community is of utmost importance and we will be monitoring health policies and guidelines closely. AAJA will be providing Covid-19 guidelines prior to the convention in Austin.
