I am pleased to announce the winner of AAJA-Asia’s inaugural Professional Development Travel Stipend Program.
On behalf of the AAJA-Asia board, I’d like to congratulate Lauren Hardie, in Seoul, who will receive $350 for expenses toward the chapter’s annual New.Now.Next International Media Conference in Hong Kong this June 6-8. For more on N3Con, head here: www.n3con.com
We received applications from five well-deserving AAJA-Asia members in Japan, South Korea and Thailand. Points were granted based on the applicants’ responses to three questions about their past and potential contributions to AAJA-Asia, how they would benefit professionally from attending N3Con and their financial need. Points from each of the three judges were combined with the points from the board as a whole to reveal the applicant with the highest number of points.
The AAJA-Asia chapter board thanks all who applied. This is our way of investing in the success of our members. We have seen phenomenal growth over the past four years and have won AAJA’s chapter of the year award consecutively the past two years – thanks to you.
Details on future stipends will be announced shortly so stay tuned.
