The Secretariat of the Professional Journalists’ Association is looking for people to shadow our Television Delegate (Billings Siwila, freelance), Magazines Delegate (Ebrahim Moola, FHM), Associate Members Delegate (Robert Brand, Rhodes Journalism) and Wire Services Delegate (probably Anso Thom, Health e-news, now that Jedi Ramalapa, IPS, is moving out of the wire service sector).
Dynamic journalists, in particular people of colour, are encouraged to get involved on our Secretariat and make their voices heard! Your duties as the Shadow Delegate will be:
1) To stand in for the sectoral Delegate as the Secretariat’s – and ProJourn members’ – point person for that particular sector of the media industry should the Delegate be unavailable for whatever reason; and
2) To bring important issues pertaining to your sector to the attention of the Secretariat so we can act on them speedily.
Drop me a line if you are keen so that I can get your application discussed by the Secretariat.
