2018 Elections

SPJ Colorado Pro Elections Chair Deb Hurley is calling for self-nominations for the five positions up for election on the board: four directors at-large and the secretary.

Board meetings are held at least every other month1, and board members may attend in person or via conference call. Board members may reside anywhere in Colorado, and must be members in good standing with national SPJ and the Colorado Professional Chapter.

To indicate your willingness to run for a position and to serve on the board, please email Deb your name, the position you are running for, a photo, a biography of no more than 250 words and a statement of no more than 200 words explaining why you want to be on the board.

Deadline is 5 p.m. June 13.

The election information will be e-mailed to all members of Colorado Pro on June 18, and members will have until June 22, to cast your ballot.

Send self-nominations to dchurley@aol.com​. 

If there are no contested elections, Deb will declare that an election is not necessary and declare those candidates the winners of the election.

If you have any questions about the process, the duties or how you can get involved with the Colorado Pro Chapter — whether as a board member or as a volunteer — please contact board president Kara Mason at karalmason@gmail.com.
