Brong Ahafo of GJA is looking to increase its membership

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

the association.
