Jun 29, 2020

Traditionally, PMJA sets aside the two days prior to our annual conference to offer some in-depth training and professional development opportunities for our members.  We canceled our annual conference scheduled in Seattle this year due to the pandemic, but we are still offering several of these trainings to our members.

On Thursday, June 25th, PMJA Members came together virtually to honor award winners, bid a fond farewell to outgoing board members and welcome new board members.  But mostly, we gathered to hear from two amazing women in public media - Maria Hinojosa, the 2020 Leo C. Lee Award winner and Kate Concannon, the 2020 Editor of the Year.  

The latest in our Building Resilience webinar series took place on Tuesday, June 16 at 2 p.m.
