Why Join SPJ?
Make a solid investment in yourself and your profession by joining the Society of Professional Journalists. Membership in SPJ is a rewarding experience that puts you at the forefront of industry happenings.
SPJ has been an industry leader for more than 100 years, and some of its activities may surprise you. Although your rights as a journalist are guaranteed under the First Amendment, the Society of Professional Journalists, both nationally and through local chapters, fights and wins battles for Freedom of Information and First Amendment rights that might not otherwise be fought at all. As a result of SPJ's grass-roots activism, we are able to address vital issues confronting today's working journalist.
