About Chicago

The Chicago chapter of AAJA aims to provide valuable resources and networking opportunities to the many journalists and journalists-to-be in the city. Our chapter has a heavy student population and a number of working journalists who are well-established in the city. We aim to connect these two populations through mixers, equip them with the tools necessary to be successful and provide resources to further their journalism endeavors. We also have a close relationship with other journalist organizations in the city and partner with them for our events.
