Networking and mentoring is a great way to make connections and spark ideas. Our fast-paced format will allow all the mentors and the mentees to meet each other, and we hope this will be the start of some great professional relationships. Tickets are limited, so reserve your space as soon as you can.

A photographer will also be available for professional head shots for your LinkedIn profiles or website bios.

You get all this for free if you're a full, associate or student member of AAJA, NABJ/SABJ or SPJ. Tickets for the general public are $30. Bonus: if you're not already a member, the mentoring workshop will be free if you join AAJA Seattle at the event ($25/student membership). Find out more about being a member at http://www.aaja.org.

Please contact aajaseattle@gmail.com if you would like to attend, but the fee would be a hardship for you.
