Dear MAC members, 

I have put our division's membership numbers over the last several decades into a visual representation that is attached. We currently have 180 members. 

Quick fact: The late Dr. Lionel C. Barrow founded our division in 1970. Our mission is to advance research, teaching and professional freedom and responsibility scholarship and initiatives that explore the relationship between racial and ethnic minorities and mass communication.

When viewing the graphic, you can see that our largest membership during the period indicated was in 1995 at 211 members and in 2002 at 210 members.

The MAC Division Outreach Committee, led by former MAC Heads Yuki Fujioka and Felicia Jones Ross, is in the process of contacting department chairs at ACEJMC-accredited institutions to make them aware of our division's goals and benefits. Other membership coordinators include Meta G. Carstarphen and E-K Daufin, who also manager our Listserv, and Kyle Huckins, our second vice head, who is also devoting time to recruitment efforts.  

We hope you will assist us in making others aware of MAC and ask them to join our division. 

Here are a few benefits:
  A free subscription to Minorities and Mass Communication Scholarship Special Issue with Howard Journal of Communications
  MAC Listserv emails and E-newsletters
  Exclusive members content at MAC website
  Voting rights
  Opportunities for leadership roles
  Eligibility for MAC awards
  Networking and contacts 
  And much more...

If you have questions, do let me know.  If you have suggestions for outreach, contact Outreach Committee Co-chair, Dr. Yuki Fujioka, at [log in to unmask]
