Celebrate Local Journalism and Vote!
The Society of Professional Journalists South Florida chapter has undertaken an extensive review and update of its bylaws – and we’ll give you free food to vote on them.
On Thursday, Oct. 21, South Florida Pro will celebrate its recent national recognition as SPJ’s Chapter of the Year while also voting on the proposed update to the chapter bylaws. Come by Maguire’s Hill 16 in Fort Lauderdale at 7 p.m. to join the festivities and partake in the voting! RSVP here.
The nine-month process, conducted by a committee of board and general members, has been deliberate and thoughtful. It creates a strong legislative framework that we believe will guide our chapter to a strong future while cleaning up ambiguities and conflicts that now exist in the bylaws as written today.
The South Florida board has approved recommending these changes to the general membership. A general membership meeting will be held to discuss and vote on adoption of these updated bylaws.
The business meeting will be followed by a South Florida journalism mixer where you can munch on Sheppard’s Pie from one of Fort Lauderdale’s oldest Irish Pub’s.
The South Florida chapter recently won National Chapter of the Year from the Society of Professional Journalists. We look forward to celebrating this achievement with you. Stay after the event for the live band and poker games.
