Journalists vote this weekend
THE 69-year-old Press Association of Jamaica (PAJ) will stage its annual general meeting this Sunday at its East Avenue Headquarters in St Andrew.
The high point of this year's AGM is the election of officers with the more than 400 members getting the chance to elect a new executive body to serve for the next two years.
Incumbent President Jenni Campbell has indicated that she will offer herself for re-election. There was, however, no indication up to yesterday if Campbell will be challenged. Any member in good financial standing can be nominated from the floor.
"It is been an honour to serve as the president of the PAJ over the past two years and I am willing to continue to serve if given the chance," a PAJ release quoted Campbell yesterday.
"It has been a challenging two years but it has been satisfying as I believe the present PAJ executive has added to the gains made by immediate past presidents Desmond Richards and Byron Buckley," she added.
"Several senior media practitioners have indicated an interest in serving on the PAJ executive for the next two years and the election should be interesting come Sunday," said the release.
The AGM begins at 10:00 am with the registration of members.
