Reflections on the Scripps Leadership Retreat
By Holly Fisher
Some of our Region 3 members went to Indianapolis earlier this month for the Ted Scripps Leadership Retreat. This program is an excellent way for new chapter leaders to learn more about SPJ while getting some awesome tips from fellow chapter leaders around the country.
I asked Ted Geltner, with the College of Journalism and Mass Communications at the University of Florida and the incoming president of the North Central Florida SPJ Chapter, to share some thoughts on his trip to Scripps Leadership Retreat.
From Ted: I did have a great time in Indy. The program was excellent, and it was interesting to meet SPJ folks from across the country and the share ideas and issues with them. It’s great to see that so many other chapters are motivated and enthusiastic about the organization. North Central Florida SPJ will be stealing ideas for events and programs from chapters big and small. We’re going to get together soon and put in place a plan for the next year based on some of the things I learned at the conference.
