New benefits for CAJ members: Henry's and Spundge

OTTAWA, Feb. 25, 2013 /CNW/ - The Canadian Association of Journalists is pleased to offer two new discounts to members.

Henry's Canada corporate rate:
Henry's and the CAJ have joined together to offer CAJ members access to Professional level Photo, Digital, Video, and Audio equipment through the Henry's Commercial Department.

It's as easy as contacting the CAJ to get the information you need to save time and money and have access to Professional level service and pricing and a huge range of cameras, microphones, and video gear.  Henry's has retail outlets in Ontario with a website that will take sales and ship to anywhere, so this perk is available to all CAJ members regardless of where you are located. The corporate means you'll always get the best price.

Spundge PRO discount:
Plus, for a limited time, members get a discounted rate on Spundge PRO, an "end-to-end platform for content discovery, curation and creation that brings sanity to editorial workflow." The curation and publishing platform is used by journalists at Digital First Media, Quartz, National Journal, the Vancouver Sun, and other news outlets to track topics  for beats and quickly discover and curate content from social  networks and news sources. CAJ members can sign up until March 31 for a 12-month subscription to Spundge PRO and lock in the beta price of $9 per month. CAJ members who sign up after March 31 (or when the beta period ends) will receive a special discount rate of 15 per cent for a 12-month subscription.

To obtain information on how to take advantage of these benefits, please contact your CAJ support team.
