One thought on “2017 AAJA Convention

  1. Congratulations to each of you for the leadership roles you continue to provide to the next generation of journalists. So proud of all of you! I find myself grieving — as this is the first time I am unable to share this news with John Quinn. (I used to print out and mail each week’s CQS posting to JCQ.)

    No doubt he’s smiling down on all of us.
