The Madison pro chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists approved new bylaws at its meeting Monday night. The update clarifies the role of officers, provides for succession of officers in the event of a resignation, and makes clear voting procedures.

Also at the meeting:

— Vice President Joe Radske offered a report on national and local membership, including interest from SPJ national president John Ensslin to hold an event in Madison in 2013 marking the 100th anniversary of the presidency of Chester Wells and the 100th anniversary of the SPJ national convention being held in Madison. Radske also said six students are seeking mentors while more than a dozen local journalists are willing to be mentors.

— President Mark Pitsch said he would write a column on government transparency for Sunshine Week to be distributed by the Wisconsin Freedom of Information Council.

— Members approved reimbursing Radske up to $300 for expenses in attending the Midwest Journalism Conference.
