Join SPJ

As a member of the national Society of Professional Journalists, you get great benefits, including:

At the local level, your membership in one of the society’s most active chapters provides:

  • Support to advance journalism through scholarships and awards for students and professionals
  • Access to low-cost or free professional development programs
  • Opportunities to connect with other dedicated journalists

Plus, we work on both the national and local levels to fight and win battles for Freedom of Information and First Amendment rights that might not otherwise be fought at all.
