Congratulations to the Connecticut Pro chapter for receiving a chapter grant this month! Here’s the chapter’s recap of the events:
Connecticut SPJ hosted a presentation by Daniel Russell, a research executive with Google, on strategies for using Google faster, more efficiently and more comprehensively. The event took place Sept. 10, 2012.
His one-and-a-half-hour presentation was free for everyone, with space provided by Southern Connecticut State University and its student SPJ chapter.
It drew approximately 25 attendees: a mix of college journalism students (mostly SCSU and Quinnipiac University), faculty and working professionals.
Russell didn’t provide handouts or worksheets for his session, but instead referred attendees to information from a reasonably similar session he presented at the 2012 conference of Investigative Reporters and Editors in Boston.
Congratulations on a successful program, Connecticut!
