The Brong Ahafo branch of the Ghana Journalists Association (GJA) is
looking forward to increasing its membership.
In a speech delivered at the swearing-in of the newly-elected regional
executives on Friday, December 15, 2017, Brong-Ahafo Regional Chairman
of the GJA, Larry Paa Kwesi Moses said it is the priority of the
association to increase its membership from next year.
“It is very sad to note that despite the proliferation of the media in
the region, the regional branch of the association has only 31
members, which I strongly believe, is not the best and I am entreating
those who are not members to register for their own good.
“It’s the priority of the association to increase its membership, and
from next year, my administration is going to intensify membership
drive in the various districts and Municipalities in the region to
convince media practitioners who are not members on the need for them
to join the association,” he said.
He added that a lot of benefits are there to be grab as the
association under the presidency of Dr. Roland Affail Monney has
signed memoranda of understanding with some development partners who
will from 2018 sponsor deserving members to undertake top up courses
both at home and abroad.
The Brong Ahafo Regional Chairman of GJA also called on Journalists to
endeavour to demonstrate a high sense of professionalism and civility
in their reportage.
He concluded by calling on members to bury their differences, forge
ahead in unity and help identify and address challenges that confront
