Want to learn more about what’s going on with the national organization of the Society of Professional Journalists?
Our Charlotte Pro chapter will host SPJ’s president-elect, Paul Fletcher, at our Juiy meeting. It’s at 6:30 p.m., Thursday, July 9 at Leroy Fox Restaurant, 705 South Sharon Amity Road, Charlotte.
Paul has been the publisher and editor of Virginia Lawyers’ Weekly in Richmond since 1989, and has won numerous state and national journalism awards. He’s been an SPJ member since 1992 and also serves on the SPJ ethics committee.
Invite a colleague or two and come out for what is sure to be an informative meeting.
Also mark your calendar for our August 13 meeting, which will be a rescheduling of the tour of ESPNU which was cancelled back in April. Make plans to join us for an inside look at the production of sports television. It’s an evening event with the time still TBD.
I look forward to seeing you at both of these events.
