North Carolina is back

Received this great info from April Dudash of the recently refreshed North Carolina Pro chapter:

Seventeen reporters and editors from the North Carolina Triangle area met Nov. 7 in Raleigh to kickstart the N.C. SPJ Pro Chapter.

Special guest SPJ President-Elect and public records expert Dave Cuillier spoke to the group about soft and hard tactics to use when trying to gain access to public records.

He recommended that journalists carve out an hour a week to submit public records requests.

“If half of those work out, that’s 26 kick-butt stories,” Cuillier said.

Other meeting participants included Brian Eckert, Region 2 director, Frank Barrows, president of the Charlotte Pro Chapter, and adviser Bobby Hayes and two students representing the High Point University Student Chapter.
