Janet Cho for AAJA National President

Why AAJA is a personal passion for Janet

Extraordinary Ideas

Remember the first time you stepped into an AAJA chapter gathering or national conference? I can still hear the drumming that opened the first UNITY Convention, a declaration to the media industry that our time had come.

I am running for AAJA National President because I want to keep AAJA extraordinary.

The Asian American Journalists Association is and has always been exceptional because our members are exceptional. Every day, via their web sites and social media, AAJA members break news, mentor students, flag outrageous coverage of Asian American issues, and share amazing stories and images in imaginative new ways.

Over 15 years on AAJA’s National Board, I have served as your National Secretary, your National Vice President for Print and your AAJA representative to the UNITY Board. I co-founded the Florida Chapter, spearheaded fund-raising drives, and wrote last year’s book commemorating AAJA’s 30th anniversary.

I am grateful to have served with leaders who care deeply about this organization and its future, and I promise to continue their legacy of integrity, commitment and accountability.

Join me in directing AAJA’s future: 
Get involved. Write a check. Come to the UNITY Convention.

Let’s keep AAJA extraordinary.

Thank you for your consideration,
