SPJ Region 12

Welcome to the SPJ Region 12 website!

SPJ_logoWe just wrapped up our Region 12 Spring Conference in Lake Charles, La., and I would like to thank our host committee – the McNeese State SPJ student chapter – for their work on putting together a great conference!

As you may know, I have moved out of the region due to work and have resigned as the Region 12 Director. National is looking for my replacement. If you are interested, please click here to learn more about the volunteer interim position available now, as well as how to run for Region 12 Director at the Excellence in Journalism conference in September.

And speaking of EIJ, I hope you make plans to attend our annual convention September 18-20 in Orlando, Florida. Early-bird registration is now open.

Thank you for the opportunity to be your Region 12 Director for the past few years. I have enjoyed my experience and look forward to continuing to work with SPJ.

If you have questions about the upcoming RD position or would like to learn more about expectations of this position, please don’t hesitate to reach me at SPJTony@gmail.com. All messages head directly to my phone, so please leave me a phone number to reach you.


Tony Hernandez
Former Region 12 Director
