The Charlotte Area Association of Black Journalists (CAABJ) held their annual Media Mixer on February 23 to mark the start of CIAA Week in Charlotte. The eventful evening was held at Tutto Mondo and attracted dozens of journalists and professionals from public relations, marketing, and other communications fields.
It was a great time to mingle and network and while there was a little shop talk, most left their work--and worries--behind. CAABJ hosts a few social mixers throughout the year, but its events calendar is also filled with workshops and community events.
The Charlotte Area Association of Black Journalists (CAABJ) is an affiliate chapter of the National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ), a nonprofit organization focused on establishing strong ties among African-Americans working in the media and expanding and balancing the media's coverage of the African-American community and experience.
