KCABJ Hook-Up to the NABJ Convention

Unfortunately, for the second year in a row, we can’t gather in-person for the national NABJ convention. But the organization would still like to recognize our original host city of Houston and continue to build community among our members across the nation.

NABJ is hosting a small, COVID-conscious comedy show from Houston on Saturday, August 21 at Noon PT / 2p CT / 3p ET. The event will be livestreamed and hosted by noted Houston broadcaster Isiah Carey. It will last no longer about 1.5 hrs.

We’d like local chapters to host their own COVID-conscious watch parties. Your chapter’s event should be held in a place with a strong enough WiFi connection to not only access the livestream but also allow your chapter to be featured. Similar to a live broadcast, we’d like to be able to throw to each chapter throughout the show (via a laptop, iPad or cellphone). We’re suggesting each chapter starts its event an hour or so in advance of the livestream.

NABJ is offering up to $500 to support local chapters and offset the watch party costs. The funds can be used toward space rental, food and drinks, etc.

Please fill out the below form. If you do not, your chapter will not receive funds. This form needs to be filled out by July 29 at 3p PT.

The Kansas City Association of Black Journalists watch party is being hosted by former KCABJ President Glenn E. Rice.

All questions can be directed to Region IV Director Tre’vell Anderson is who spearheading the event. They can be contacted at anderson.trevell@gmail.com.
