As a member of the National Union of Journalist, I have represented Nottingham Branch at the ‘Delegate Meeting’ of the union’ written reports and photographed the speakers. In addition to trade union activities, I have always thought of the NUJ as my ‘professional organisation’ representing good practice, ethics and standards.
