Home > Training > Ted Scripps Leadership Institute > 2009 Recap

Professional and student SPJ chapter leaders from around the country met in Indianapolis June 5-7 to participate in the Ted Scripps Leadership Institute. Funded by the Scripps Howard Foundation, the weekend is a chance for incoming chapter leaders to meet and develop their leadership skills.

Participants learned more about their individual leadership styles by completing a DiSC assessment facilitated by Jeffrey Cufaude of Idea Architects. Topics such as fundraising, recruitment and leadership roles were covered in a series of small group sessions. A final seminar on chapter goal setting was held on the last day.

In their own words
Thirty participants in the 2009 Ted Scripps Leadership Institute explain what SPJ means to them. See what they have to say.

After the welcome dinner on Friday evening, President Dave Aeikens delivered the State of the Society address and invited participants to engage in a Q&A session with executive board members. The participants then had the chance to mingle with an outing to a duckpin bowling alley.
