DETROIT, MI - The Detroit-NABJ (National Association of Black Journalists) has acquired office space that will serve as its local headquarters. The new office is located at 65 Cadillac Square, #2200 , Detroit , MI 48226 inside the Cadillac Towers building. The move is part of an effort to keep pace with its growing membership base and facilitate the needs of existing membership.
“The need to expand and acquire office space is a direct consequence of our success and anticipated future growth,” said Detroit-NABJ President Chris Campbell. “Our new office allows us to operate out of a central location – in the heart of downtown in walking distance from most of Detroit ’s civic, judicial and corporate headquarters just east of Campus Martius. It’s an ideal location because we are centered in a vibrant, business hub.”
The office is provided by City Suites Inc., in association with the International Detroit Black Expo, Inc. (IDBE) and also comes with use of an executive conference room, business computer lab, break room/lounge, secure mail box and live operator answering service.
"Having a presence in the heart of Downtown Detroit's business district has so many advantages,” said Dorothy Redmond, Detroit-NABJ Secretary. “It will be easy to meet and collaborate with various business and civic groups while enjoying the operation of a conventional office and one stop business solution center.”
The office space acquisition comes at a time when Detroit-NABJ has been branding its image, sharpening its overall focus and conducting aggressive membership recruitment. Functioning as a local chapter of the National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ), Detroit-NABJ is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization whose mission is to empower minority media professionals and ensure equitable representation of minorities in media.
