Convention Kicks Off!


The AAJA Convention kicked off with a great lion dance from Gund Kwok at the opening reception.  Click to watch (my amateur videography)!  We were also graced by Secretary of Commerce Gary Locke, Mayor Thomas Menino, Globe editor Marty Baron, and AAJA president Sharon Chan.  NE chapter member Al Young did a great job emceeing, and we even got an appearance by chef Ming Tsai!  All in all, a great start to our convention.  A big thanks to our convention co-chairs, Sangita Chandra and Shirley Leung!

I’ll be adding pics as the convention progresses, from me (your chapter co-prez Shirley Goh) and our pro photographers Kelvin Ma, Susan Choi, and Shi Ying.  Browse them here.

We want to see YOU at Friday’s NE Chapter Mixer & Fundraiser!  RSVP to get on the guest list!
