Back to the Blog! A long awaited Region 6 update!

Hello Region 6 folks!

It’s been a very very long time since I’ve written in the SPJ blog, and for that, I apologize!  But I’m back and writing up a storm getting caught up on all the activities in Region 6!

It’s going to be a very busy spring for several chapters in our region.

I’d first like to give a great big congratulations to the folks at the Madison SPJ Pro chapter!  They have recently relaunched their local chapter and are firing on all cylinders as far as I can tell!  Their new officers include:

President: Mark Pitsch, assistance city editor at the Wisconsin State Journal

Vice-President: Joe Radske, content manager at WKOW-TV

Secretary-Treasurer: Rebecca Wasieleski, magazine editor at Cygnus Business Media

Go to SPJ Madison’s Facebook page for updates on upcoming events and issues they’re watching in their area.

It’s also a busy spring for the Minnesota Pro Chapter!  They have several events coming up, including a Trivia Night competition with the Minnesota Public Relations Society of America chapter on March 10th at Grumpy’s in downtown Minneapolis, and a four-week continuing education series starting March 15th with a session on Google 101 for Journalists.  Visit the Minnesota SPJ website for more details!

And don’t forget the Midwest Journalism Conference, coming up April 8-9 in Bloomington, MN!  We have two days of fantastic sessions, workshops, and dinners all focusing on making you a better journalist.  It will take place at the Crowne Plaza & Suites, located at 3 Appletree Square in Bloomington, off I-494 and 34th Ave. (it’s actually the same hotel we’ve had the conference at in the past several years, it’s just a Crowne Plaza now instead of a Holiday Inn).

Registration forms are available on the www.mnspj.org website.  If you book your hotel room at the Crowne Plaza, you’ll get a discount on both your room cost and your conference registration.

Have an update on what’s going in your chapter?  Email me at spjregion6@gmail.com and I’ll post it on my next blog update!

You can also follow SPJ Region 6 on Facebook and Twitter (@spjregion6).

See you soon!
