24 Aug Introducing the new chapter board for 2015-2016
Summertime is winding down, and the SPJ Western WA pro chapter board is starting to ramp up for another activity-filled year. Most of the board is returning and we also added new members with the last election.
Weâ€™ve got a strong team that is looking forward to serving the public and SPJ members with our commitment to activities that support news content, including skills-based workshops, news trivia events and the annual Excellence in Journalism awards gala. You can expect to see programming starting in October, as we’ll spend the next 6 weeks planning our next year. We’d love to hear ideas from you about the kinds of events that you’d like to see, too. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
Athima Chansanchai returns to the board as president, after serving as vice president and treasurer last year. She first joined the board in 2012. Caley Cook, who joined the board last year, has stepped up as vice president. Lauren Foster takes on the role of secretary, while longtime student volunteer and recent UW grad Ashley Stewart becomes our new treasurer. Our other returning board members also span a range of mediums, from print/online to radio to visual journalism: Andrea Brown, Sara Lerner, Erika Schultz and Joshua Trujillo.
Our newly elected board members are:Â MarcusÂ HarrisonÂ Green,Â Natalie Singer-Velush andÂ ZachariahÂ Bryan.
