Join us on Saturday, July 20 for AAJA New England’s Summer Dim Sum at JOYFUL GARDEN at 10:30 a.m.
It will be a time to connect with AAJA journalists and get to know our chapter if you haven’t been to recent events. If you’re headed to AAJA19 it is the perfect chance to connect with others before flying to the ATL.
Most of all, it will be a time to get some great food with great people.
We are asking for a modest contribution of $10 for those who come.
