I’m not identifying anyone regarding recent email correspondence sent to me as part of an info-outreach by theÂ Region I Director of the Society of Professional Journalists. Since several WORD writers have won SPJ Mark of Excellence awards in recent years, I try to be in contact with the organization though not actively involved.Â
As the Region One Director for the National Society of Professional Journalists (SPJ), I am reaching out to you as I have your name and email address on my list as the SPJ liaison for your college or university’s SPJ chapter. I would like you to know that I am available to you as a source ofÂ information and support for your chapter.
What follows is the edited response from a journalism professor who has been seriously involved with the organization for several years.Â Â I thought I would post without explanation an edited version of what he wrote to the regional director but if several days from now I notice the need for more clarity, I will re-address this decision. I think the whole matter is very informative.
