Why join BABJ?

You’ve asked for it for years and now Baltimore has a thriving local chapter for the National Association of Black Journalists. Charm City has also been selected to host the 2016 Region I Conference. Here’s your chance to return to the mission of NABJ, right here in Maryland.

3 Reasons to Join BABJ

Membership has its privileges. Here are three reasons to join BABJ:

  1. Starting January 2016 the BABJ Facebook page will become a restricted “members only” page. We share countless job, fellowships, internships and freelance opportunities via this page.
  2. You will also be able to attend meetings, career development workshops and events as a member.
    (NOTE: Meetings will always be free to members. Meeting guests fees will not exceed $5. Special event rates will vary.)
  3. We are also creating a “Members Only” online portal to access the BABJ Directory.

Please complete this online application and submit your payment via PayPal. Your business contact information will be listed in the BABJ membership directory and will only be available to members and the National Association of Black Journalists HQ.
