The Canadian Association of Journalism's national board is set to discuss what position the association will take on one of the industry's most controversial subjects: the licensing of journalists.

The board will discuss its position at its Sept. 17-18 meeting and plans to present a brief in the Quebec government consultation.

The Quebec government has launched consultation into a proposal to create the title of "professional journalist".

CAJ members have one week (end of day Sept. 16) to send in feedback to the following questions:

–Do you support the title of professional journalist as proposed by the Quebec government?
–If not, is there any model for a professional title or status for journalists that you would support?
–What other areas of the Quebec government's consultation document do you think the CAJ should address in its brief?
