Yep, it had to happen. They went and made an honest woman out of me.
I’m now an official member of the Eastern Ski Writers Association (ESWA), part of the North American Snowsports Journalists Association (NASJA).
Sounds very hifalutin’, doesn’t it?
Well, it is. The North American Snowsports Journalists Association (NASJA) is a professional group of more than 300 writers, authors, photographers, filmmakers and broadcasters who report ski- and snowboard-related news, information and features throughout the United States, Canada and Mexico, via the various media. The NASJA is an “umbrella” association of three regional affiliates that represent Eastern North America, Midwestern North America and Western North America.
So what exactly does this mean? Two things:
1) It means that people in the snow industry have recognized both this and TheSkiDiva.com as legitimate web sites, as opposed to someone who’s just blogging to their grandma.
2) It means I’ll have better access to information about skiing and snowsports — information I can pass on to you.
Can a spot in the White House press corp be next????
