Two more chapters get cash in May

Two chapters have been awarded funds for their awesome programs thanks to SPJ Chapter Grants. We ended this years program on a great note by dishing out the cash to SPJ South Florida and the Fort Worth chapter for some great ideas.

According to their grant application, “SPJ South Florida and the Miami chapter of NAHJ are following the lead of their national organizations- who are joining forces for EIJ this summer in Anaheim – and we’re sponsoring our own mini-conference on Saturday, July 13, at the Mayfair Hotel in Coconut Grove.” For more information on the event, visit their website.

The Forth Worth chapter plans to host an in-depth program about investigative journalism at the request of many of their members. They also hope to help out the community and had this to say: “By providing in depth training, the community will benefit as journalists apply theskills learned to report on the misuses and abuses as well as the beneficial events occurring in ourarea as well as beyond it for those reporters who take these skills with them into other areas.”

Either way, both chapters are set to provide quality programming with some extra in their wallets. Look for information about the next round of Chapter Grants in the future and congrats to these two great chapters!

Chapters receive August grants for great programs

Congratulations to the Rio Grande and University of Miami SPJ chapters! Check out the programs listed below that they’ll be hosting with the help of funds from a SPJ Chapter Grant. If you’re interested in applying on behalf of your chapter, the next cycle deadline is September 5. Apply online today!

Rio Grande Chapter

The Rio Grande Chapter of SPJ was awarded a chapter grant to hold the program “Simplifying Science” in September.

Bringing together scientists, reporters and the public, the event will discuss better ways of communicating complex, important scientific research. It will feature a panel of four scientists and four experienced science writers, each offing tips about how scientists can communicate more effectively with the media and vice versa.

Because New Mexico is home to two national laboratories, Intel and three top research universities, the chapter realized the complexities that some reporters face when covering entrepreneurs developing cutting edge robotics, renewable energy systems, software and much more.

The chapter plans to webcast the event for members who can’t attend and will post tips and video to their website as well.

University of Miami Chapter

An August Chapter Grant was also awarded to the University of Miami SPJ chapter for their program, “Miami Representative on the National Stage.”

The chapter will invite Pia Malbran, current president of the National Association of Hispanic Journalists South Florida Chapter, to speak on television production. Her vast experience in investigative broadcasting, both on the local Miami scene as well as national outlets, will provide students and faculty with great tips of the trade and solid advice.
