Organizing the Charlotte chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists began before word came about the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte in 2012.
But word of the convention gave us focus. We strongly believe that professional, local journalists have an important role to play leading up to the convention, and a local chapter of the society can help greatly. Yes, we want to throw a party, but we hope our work will go beyond that.
This video from Bob Morgan of the Charlotte Chamber notes that 15,000 journalists are expected, and the Chamber wants to help them tell Charlotte’s story. So do we.
Stay tuned, and get involved now.
