Region 7 had a great spring conference in Omaha! We had about 75 participants, which I think is pretty good for a state without a professional chapter. Speaking of that, I am excited to report that several Nebraska journalists have stepped up to get the ball rolling on reviving the state’s professional chapter. If you are interested in getting in on this, contact one of the following folks:
Joe Radske, News Director FOX 42: email@example.com or 402-554-4207
Katie Knapp Schubert, News Director KIOS-FM: firstname.lastname@example.org
Carol Zuegner, Assoc. Professor Creighton University: email@example.com
It’s important to make this chapter a statewide outreach, so even if you’re far from Omaha & Lincoln, I hope you will consider joining SPJ to take advantage of great services and support. In fact, you can join right now! Then, let Joe, Katie or Carol know you’re on board.
Here is my Facebook photo album, showing the original Nebraska Pro Chapter charter for Sigma Delta Chi (SPJ’s original name), which hangs in the halls of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and snaps from the conference.
