The record will show that:1. NAHJ members are nowkept informed of impor-tant developments via e-mail. They can now renewtheir membership and reg-ister for the conventiononline. Their inquiries arepromptly answered.2. Region 6 has held tworegional conferences in theMidwest. Region 2 hasheld two regional confer-ences in the Northeast.Region 3 organized anevent in Washington D.C.,where NAHJ members metand asked questionsofU.S. Housing and UrbanDevelopment SecretaryMel Martinez. Most of theregions have participatedin workshops andpanelsin collaboration with othermedia organizations, andin social mixers.3. Our Web site is interactiveand contains relevantinformation. Most of theservices mentioned in thefirst item can be accessedthrough the site.4. Region 8 held aprofession-al development workshopfor Spanish-languagemedia members and stu-dents in Los Angeles.Itattracted 120participantsfrom 4 states.Region 4 is planning asimilar event in Miami inAugust. For the firsttimeat our convention in June, we will offer an all-day seminar, sponsored byAgencia EFE, on properusage of the Spanish lan-guage in journalism. Wewill also host “MediaEncuentros,” organizedand sponsored by the PewHispanic Center and theKnight Foundation. FifteenNAHJ members, whowork in mainstreammedia, will interact with15 New California Mediamembers who work inSpanish-language publica-tions.Both the Web siteand the newsletter havemore Spanish content. Ide-ally, they should be fully bilingual.5. NAHJ has representativeson Radio and TelevisionNews Directors Associationand American Society ofNewspaper Editors. Wecontinually express ourconcerns about proper rep-resentation and coverage.Our “
Network BrownoutReport
” continues to exposethe low level of coveragefor Latinos on networknews. We have individual-ly approached publishersand network executivesabout increasing theemployment of Latino journalists at all levels andimproving the coverage ofLatinos.6. Under my leadership theNAHJ has forcefullyweighed in on issues suchas:a) The treatment of jour-nalists covering theVieques controversy. b) The issue of freedom ofinformation in Mexico.c) The use of ethnic slursand defamation ofLatinos in variousmedia outlets.d) The elimination of theFCC/EEO regulations.f) The layoff of the majori-ty of anchors of colorand a Cuban-bornrecruiter at CNN.7. Board members receivedtraining on strategic plan-ning and fundraising.Information on seminars,workshops, fellowshipsand other opportunitieswere e-mailed to the mem- bers and posted on theWeb site.8.More people are steppingup to the plate and runningfor the board. Thisisprogress in our NAHJ civicculture.9.Our 2001 Scholarship ban-quet and Convention weresuccessful raising $216,000and $227,669 respectively.
