Our chapter president, Swati Sharma, recently left The Boston Globe for a job at The Washington Post. We wish her the best, and thank her for her work at AAJA-NE.
Susan Choi, a long-time AAJA member, has been appointed to serve as president and graciously accepted. Susan is a freelance photographer who has helped me with numerous AAJA events in the past. She photographed the 2009 AAJA convention in Boston and our Ming Tsai fund-raiser, helped me plan student events, secured silent auction items for AAJA National, and most recently represented New England at the presidents’ meeting at the AAJA convention in New York. She brings energy and enthusiasm, and I am confident she will lead our chapter well.
Please welcome Susan and contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org with any ideas or offers of help — let her know if you’re willing to pitch in at a chapter event, mentor a student, etc.
