Following a meeting on Friday 6 April 2018 in Casablanca Morocco, between representatives of the Steering Committee of the Federation of African Journalists (FAJ) and some of our colleagues from a few of our affiliates, convened by the International Federation of Journalists (IFJ), it was resolved that: The next Congress of FAJ should be held either December 2018 or early 2019.
The Congress should be all inclusive and open to all FAJ affiliates irrespective of their status within FAJ/IFJ.
As a way forward, the Steering Committee of FAJ to set the machinery in motion to organize the Congress, to be assisted by a four-member team, two each from FAJ and our other colleagues.
The FAJ Steering Committee to send notice to all affiliates calling for expression of interest to host the Congress.
In furtherance to this, the Steering Committee of FAJ which has the constitutional mandate to call for Congress has directed the FAJ Secretariat to begin the process and inform all affiliates accordingly.
