SPJ names Madison pro a top small chapter

The Society of Professional Journalists has named the Madison pro chapter one of three top small chapters in the country for its work this year. SPJ announced the award at a banquet Tuesday evening in New Orleans at the conclusion of its national convention.

Other top small pro chapters are St. Louis pro and Utah pro, which earned highest honors this year for battling restrictions on their state’s open records law.

The Madison pro chapter this year has increased membership, held training sessions and raised money for journalists affected by the Joplin, Mo., earthquake.
