A Look Back, A Look Ahead

Greetings Region 1 SPJ members. It’s been an exciting time for our region, for reasons big and small ….

First, we held a successful regional conference at Hofstra University. Hats off to the Press Club of Long Island and its conference committee for all of their hard work.

We announced the Mark of Excellence Awards winners and celebrated the best in collegiate journalism in Region 1.

We were represented at the SPJ national board meeting in Indianapolis and at the SDX Foundation board meeting by Region 1 Director Rebecca Baker.

We started planning for JournCamp, a day-long journalism training seminar in Midtown Manhattan on Saturday, June 13.

We marked our calendars for Excellence in Journalism 2015 in Orlando, Florida.

And finally, we learned that we are #1. At just over 1,300 members, Region 1 is the largest region in SPJ. Nearly 1 out of 6 SPJ members lives in the Northeast U.S., which as we know, has more major media outlets than any other part of the country.

Let’s get together in NYC this June and/or in Orlando this September and toast to our success!
