During the months of September and October the Executive Committee of the Malta Sports Journalists Association held meetings with the Malta Baseball and Softball Association, the Archery Association of Malta and the Malta Ten Pin Bowling Association. During separate meetings, they discussed the best way for these associations to get published the sport events that they organise or participation of their athletes in local and international events. The Malta Sports Journalists Association offered to help these associations by advising with the best way to prepare their reports and how to deliver them to the right media in order to get them published. In the coming weeks the MSJA will be meeting with more sport associations.
