I've recently relocated and started working for a Maine newspaper. In college I was heavily active in the student SPJ chapter. I looked into joining the Maine Pro Chapter of SPJ, only it does not have a Web site and the listed acting president is not returning my e-mails, so I can only guess that the chapter is inactive. I'd like to try and bring the chapter back to life, and I was wondering if anyone has any advice on how to do this? I've already started by contacting the Region 1 director.
Also, are there any journalists in Maine who would be interested in participating in an SPJ chapter?
