The Annual Congress of the PUL is slated for November 11- 13 in Ganta, Nimba County.
It is the highest decision-making body of the PUL which meets at a selected location in Liberia periodically.
The Congress is expected to bring together at least 500 journalists from across the country.
The PUL has been working to protect journalists and free expression in Liberia since 1964 and has transformed itself into the country's foremost pro-democracy media organization.
Meanwhile, this year's PUL Congress Committee comprises Mr. James Kiazolu Chairman; Raymond Zarbay, Patrick Flomo, and Estelle Liberty.
The Congress Committee is mandated by the PUL Constitution to coordinate the annual gathering of journalists in Liberia.
The PUL is in the spirit of building a strong journalism community urging all its members and journalists to thoroughly read the Union’s Constitution and suggest possible amendments for Congress consideration.
All constitutional amendment suggestions are to be addressed to the Chairman of the Congress Committee in care of the PUL Secretariat by Wednesday, 9 November.
In a related development, the PUL leadership has appointed the 2016 Elections Committee led by Mr. Aaron Kollie. Others are journalists Jallahwah A. Topoe, Tetee Kanneh, Siatta Scott Johnson and James Dorbor Soah.
