Four years ago, UNITY organizers dared to dream they might have 10,000 registrants at the 2008 conference.

But as the conference grows closer, their dreams have been dashed by the side effects of industry turmoil and layoffs. As of 4 p.m. Friday, only 4,314 people had registered for the conference.

The conference meets July 23 to July 27 in Chicago. Are you planning to go? Meet up with CFABJers as well as local members of NAHJ and AAJA who also will be attending the conference at our July 17 pre-UNITY event.

Watch this space for more details.


We’ve reminded you about it before, but figured it wouldn’t hurt to do it again.

If you’re planning to attend UNITY this summer, consider paying your registration costs before June 13, when the price goes up.

Our meeting date has been changed.

The CFABJ May meeting will be Saturday, May 24.

It still will be held at the Orlando Sentinel, 633 N. Orange Ave., Orlando 32804.

As always, contact the executive board if you have any questions:

Our next meeting will be Saturday, April 19 at 10 a.m. at the Orlando Sentinel.

Here are two helpful pieces that explain a few ways journalists can use Twitter:

CFABJers, do you tweet? Have you found it helpful in finding or disseminating news? If you have questions about the application, bring them to our April 19 meeting, when we’ll be talking a bit about multimedia.
