Find chapters in your area
SPJ's chapters are the backbone of the Society. Our local connection enables SPJ members to engage in a high level of journalism right in your own community. No matter where your career takes you from journalism school to the first newsroom and beyond SPJ is there to help you network in your local community; obtain valuable training from industry experts on the local, regional and national level; mentor young and upcoming journalists; and engage with other journalists nationwide on topics that are the foundation of our Democratic society Freedom of Information and First Amendment rights. SPJ is empowered to fight for the protection of all journalists through the strong leadership and participation of its nearly 250 local chapters.
