Recap events, suggest future programming at end-of-quarter meeting

Join us for our final meeting of the year as we recap events and suggest future programming.

Here’s what to expect in fall quarter:

Washington Collegiate Journalism Conference: Last year, we hosted 60 students from around the state for journalism workshops from professionals, including Mike Fancher, retired executive editor of The Seattle Times, Tom Hallman Jr., senior reporter for The Oregonian and winner of the Pulitzer Prize for feature writing and others. We’ll talk about the plan for next year and give you the opportunity to suggest speakers.

Film screening, “A Fragile Trust”From the film’s website, it’s the “shocking story of Jayson Blair, the most infamous serial plagiarist of our time, and how he unleashed the massive scandal that rocked theNew York Times and the entire world of journalism.” Samantha Grant, the film’s director, is a journalism professor at UC Berkeley. We’ll talk about fundraising for this event and others.

Next year, we’ll aim for events such on topics such as diversity and ethics. Come share your ideas!
