Our Society of Professional Journalists chapter bylaws require us to hold an election for 2013-14 officers, but as has been our tradition, we take that five-minute duty and wrap a couple of hours of socializing, food and beer around it.
So once again, the Valley of the Sun SPJ chapter holds its annual meeting and mostly social event at the SunUp Brewing Co., 322 E. Camelback, just a short walk from the Central Avenue/Camelback Road light rail line, 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Thursday, July 11. Here’s the map: http://sunupbrewing.com/location.html
Members and nonmembers are welcome. The chapter will pick up the first round of appetizers. Come and cool off with a variety of on-the-premises-brewed beers and meet fellow journalists from around the Valley. Somewhere among the fun, our members will be asked to cast a voice vote for next year’s president, vice president, secretary and treasurer. The official slate of candidates will be announced soon.
