Out with Queen City

The board of the Queen City Professional Chapter has voted to change its name to
the Greater Cincinnati Professional Chapter, a name board members said better represents the group.

Cincinnati picked up the nickname, “Queen City,” by the 1820s, according to the Cincinnati Historical Society Library. Residents proud of the city’s development dubbed it the “Queen of the West.”

The name change requires approval of the executive committee of SPJ’s board of directors, which grants chapter charters. The executive committee next meets in January.
