*ELECTIONS FOR AAJA-ASIA SEOUL SUBCHAPTER**

Hello, AAJA members

 

64440451 - a blurry street scene against election text

November seems to be the right time for changes. Changes in Korea’s political and media landscape rocked by mounting corruption allegations. Changes in the Seoul sub-chapter for all good reasons.

 

As Seoul has grown into the biggest sub-chapter in Asia, we have decided to elect new officers for the term of 2017.

 

The positions up for election this year are  

Programming Director for Large Events and Tea Talks,

Programming Director for Educational Programs and Workshops,

Programming Director for Social Events and Mixers and

At-Large Board Member.

 

All four of them will serve as board members. The At-Large Board Member will provide support to programming directors and carry out assignments as requested by the board.

Farewell Party for Steve Miller & John Power

Good bye, dear friends and AAJA members Steve Miller & John Power!

Steve Miller will leave the country for his new job at VOA in Washington and John Power will also be out of the country for at least a year for his new adventure in Australia. Both will leave Korea at the end of the month.

It will probably be the last chance to catch up with the two great friends.

Chance Dorland, a host of the event, will conduct interviews with the two wonderful journalists. We also plan to have a band as well!!!

Most importantly, beer will be served at 1,000 won for AAJA members, 2,000 won for non-AAJA members (Budwiser and local beer)
