AAJA-SF is excited to announce that we are hosting the 2015 National AAJA Convention! Although it’s a year away, plans are already underway to make sure the Bay Area gives our colleagues from the rest of the country (and Asia!) the best experience possible.

AAJA-SF will present a promotional video of next year’s convention this August at the national convention in Washington D.C., and we’ve decided to do a bit of crowd-sourcing for our video.

The idea, inspired by AAJA National President Paul Cheung, is a parody of the viral video “#SELFIE,” by The Chainsmokers (AKA “But first, let me take a selfie”).

For the next two weeks, AAJA-SF is gathering #AAJAselfie photos/video for our convention video. We’d really love to see members taking selfies at their favorite Bay Area landmarks or in their newsrooms/offices, but most of all, we want to include as many members as possible. So, please, got out there and take those selfies. Tag them #AAJAselfie and have fun! Put them on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, or just email them to us.

We’ll take whatever selfies are taken by July 28th and put them in our video. If you have any questions, contact 2015 Convention Co-chairs Donna Tam and Kevin Lee at and

Need some ideas? Here’s a few Bay Area “landmarks” we’d love to see photos of:

Golden Gate Bridge
Japan Town
Little Saigon
Union Square
Ferry Building
Angel Island
Embarcadero (in front of the Bay Bridge)
UC Berkeley
Jack London Square
Google campus (in front of the Androids)
Facebook campus (in front of the “like” thumb sign)
Twitter (in front of the Twitter sign)
foodie photos
newsroom photos!
