SPJ chapter members,

It’s that time of year again to announce that we will be running our annual board elections and are looking for candidates to step up to the challenge!

The SPJ board requires members to attend at least four meetings per year, be present at as many events and panels we host as possible and come up with ways to grow our membership and develop programming ideas for each month.

Open board positions, include

* President
* Vice President
* Secretary-Treasurer

Should you have questions about the following positions and responsibilities feel free to visit the “About Us” page on spjne.org to see who is currently in that role then feel free to reach out to them personally.

Those interested in running for a position on the board must submit a statement of intent to me, Jordan Frias, on why you would like to run and why you are qualified. The absolute deadline for this is 11:59 p.m. on Wednesday, September 12 and can be emailed to jfriasspj@gmail.com.

All who are considering a run must be in good standing with SPJ meaning you must have paid dues to the regional and national organization prior to running. If you are receiving this email then you are likely in good standing.

There are four general board member posts as well if anyone in interested in running for one of those slots.

If you don’t want to be on the board but do wish to participate in our Regional Conference Steering Committee, please let me know – the conference this year is tentatively scheduled for April 5 and 6 at Northeastern University.
