Scripps Leadership Institute eyes Richmond date
Thanks to Region 2 Director Brian Eckert for this news from Indy HQ:
Starting in 2013, the Ted Scripps Leadership Institute for SPJ chapter leaders will no longer be held in Indianapolis. Instead it will be held in three locations around the country during the year. The idea is to enable more people to attend, and to reduce the cost of attending for members.
Richmond, Va., is proposed as one of the sites, on Nov. 8-10 (Friday night-Sunday morning).
Any Region 4 leaders interested in attending? Be in touch and I’ll forward more info as it becomes available.
Unfettered access to those in power, a push for government transparency and a vigorous defense of the First Amendment are perhaps more important now than ever before.
