A new regional director; more news TK

The SPJ national board met electronically on Monday to choose a new regional director to serve on the board.

The vacancy was for Region 10, which covers Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon and Washington.

Ethan Chung was Region 10 director until he resigned.

The board decided Monday on Donald W. Meyers to fill the seat. Meyers is a reporter/multimedia reporter with the Yakima Herald-Republic and a member of the William O. Douglas SPJ chapter in Washington state.

Meyers served on the national board when he was the Region 9 director from 2010 to 2014. He ran for Region 10 director at EIJ 17, but lost to to Chung.

Also Monday, the board talked about a personnel topic. There should be public news soon about that discussion.

Defending the First Amendment and promoting open government are more crucial now than ever. Join SPJ's fight for the public’s right to know — either as an SPJ Supporter or a professional, student or retired journalist.
