San Diego SPJ is co-hosting a mixer on Wednesday, August 27 with the local Asian American Journalists Association, National Association of Black Journalists, National Association of Hispanic Journalists, Press Club and Online News Association chapters.
Thanks to all who came to last night’s awards banquet. From the warm weather to the shortened program (with more time for socializing) to KPBS Senior Editor Mark Sauer’s rousing keynote speech, it was truly a great evening.
In May, 14 fires erupted across San Diego County, burning 26,000 acres; destroying 46 homes and 19 other structures; spurring 121,000 evacuation notices, and causing nearly $30 million of property damage. It’s all San Diego talked about for a time. It’s a conversation that can’t stop.
Please join co-sponsors from the San Diego Chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists and California State University San Marcos for “Witness to Wildfires: Looking Through a Rear-View Mirror.” It will be a lively and timely expert panel discussion at the outset of another long, tough fire season. The discussion will be in Markstein Hall, room 125 on the San Marcos campus July 16 from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. For those interested, a brief campus walking tour will precede the discussion at 6 p.m., starting in front of Markstein Hall.
