AAJA Nation vs. Homemade Tamales

In a nod to the UNITY12 host city, National Association of Hispanic Journalists President Michele Salcedo has challenged my organization, the Asian American Journalists Association, to a friendly (and tasty) wager.
Who will bring the most members to the UNITY12 convention in Las Vegas?
At stake for Michele? Three dozen homemade tamales — reportedly “famous, incredibly light and delicious.”
At stake for me? Three dozen items selected to represent each of AAJA’s 21 chapters (wasabi Pringles for AAJA-Asia, Celestial Seasonings for AAJA-Denver, etc.)
But, really, we all win. The higher the turnout, the more people we can all meet and learn from.
So, what are you waiting for? If you want top-notch journalism training, get registered now
