AAJA Sacramento whole-heartedly thanks KCRA3 reporter Suzanne Phan for her four years on the chapter board, serving three years as chapter co-president and one year as vice-president. Under her leadership with Judy Lin and previously with Sandy Louey, she helped the chapter organize fundraisers that raised more than $68,000 for student scholarships and chapter programs. She also helped connect the chapter with community and corporate leaders.
Suzanne helped organize and run the AAJA Photo Showcase for the past 2 years, the “Taste of Asia” event, and AAJA’s 20th Anniversary Event. And, she was a crucial part of the chapter when it was named AAJA Chapter of the Year in 2006. To think, it all started with her just showing up for dim sum with AAJA Sacramento!
Suzanne says: “AAJA Sacramento is a phenomenal chapter with many dedicated and talented journalists. I’ve learned so much from its members. They’ve been great friends and also my second family. Thank you for the opportunity to grow and to help the chapter become what it is today. Wishing the AAJA Sacramento and it’s new board all the best.”
