SOCIETY OF PROFESSIONAL JOURNALISTS
BOARD OF DIRECTORS
MARCH 18, 2008
VIA CONFERENCE CALL


MEETING CALLED TO ORDER
With President Clint Brewer presiding, the meeting of the board of directors of the Society of Professional Journalists was called to order at 4:01 p.m. on Tuesday, March 18, 2008, via a telephonic conference call.

ROLL CALL
In addition to President Brewer, the following were present for all or a portion of the meeting: President-Elect Dave Aeikens; Secretary-Treasurer Kevin Smith; Vice President, Campus Chapter Affairs Neil Ralston; Immediate Past President Christine Tatum; Campus Adviser at-Large Mead Loop; Campus Representative Melissa Patterson; Regional Directors Carolyn James, Ann Augherton, Jeremy Steele, Travis Poling, Deb Hurley and Sonny Albarado. Staff members present included Executive Director Terrence G. Harper; Associate Executive Directors Chris Vachon; and Editor Joe Skeel.

AWARDS & HONORS COMMITTEE CHAIRWOMAN
Brewer reported that Ginny Frizzi has accepted his appointment to serve as chairwoman of the Awards & Honors Committee, negating any further action by the board of directors.

APPOINTMENT OF THE REGION 10 DIRECTOR
Region 10 Director Tom Henderson resigned on February 20, 2008. Brewer issued a call to members in Region 10 for qualified candidates. Four members either volunteered or were nominated: former Region 10 Director Scott Maben; Kathy Campbell, Univ. of Oregon; and retired members Oren Campbell and Fred Lark. Campbell and Lark indicated they would be willing serve in the event no one else was identified. Prior to the meeting, Campbell withdrew her name from consideration.

Upon proper motion and second by Aeikens and Tatum, respectively, Scott Maben was appointed to serve as interim Region 10 Director until the 2008 convention when a permanent replacement will be elected by the region to serve the remainder of Henderson’s unexpired term, until the 2009 convention. The vote was unanimous.

ADJOURNMENT
There being no further business to come before the board of directors, Brewer declared the meeting adjourned at 4:07 p.m. on Tuesday, March 18, 2008.
