SPJ holiday party, business meeting Dec. 14

Honor Journalism, Celebrate the Holidays

MADISON – It has been one dramatic year in Madison journalism. So as the year comes to a close, it’s time to celebrate our collective achievements, honor our colleagues, and get ready for the holidays at a party sponsored by the Madison professional chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists.

The party will be held Wednesday, Dec. 14 at 7:30 pm at Brocach, 7 West Main Street, Madison, first floor. All area journalists are invited. SPJ members and journalists who join the organization on the night of the party will receive a free drink, while all attendees will be eligible to purchase raffle tickets for a $100 gift certificate to Brocach. SPJ will also be collecting non-perishable food items for donation to the Goodman Community Center’s Food Pantry.

SPJ will hold a business meeting at 6:00 pm prior to the party, at the same location. All area journalists are invited to attend the meeting, but only SPJ members can vote on SPJ business. An agenda will be available next week.

SPJ is a national membership organization that promotes high standards and ethics among journalists, fosters First Amendment principles and advocates that journalism is a key element in representative democracy.
