We have an exciting chapter program coming up next month!
Meet the Media Day is a program for central Virginia non-profit organizations, presented by the Society of Professional Journalists – Virginia Pro Chapter and the University of Richmond’s Jepson School of Leadership Studies on Friday, Sept. 9. Editors and reporters representing the gamut of Richmond metro area news organizations – print, online and broadcast – will speak and take questions on how to get coverage of organizational news and events. Three panels will cover daily, community and specialty publications in-depth.
A portion of the proceeds from this event will benefit the college scholarship fund of the Society of Professional Journalists – Virginia Pro Chapter/ Virginia SPJ, SDX Educational Foundation. Registration is available online at http://meetthemediarva.eventbrite.com through Thursday, Sept. 8. Seats are available for $50 per session, including a refreshment break from 9:30 a.m.-10 a.m., or attend all three sessions for $100. The all-session package includes lunch at the award-winning UR Heilman Dining Center.
While the panels are pretty full, including several chapter members, we are in need of volunteers to assist with registration the day of this event. Let Brian Eckert, (804) 287-6659, or Pat Kane (804) 986-6804 if you can help!
