Proposed Bylaw Amendments

Dear SPJ chapter leader:

The Society of Professional Journalists' delegates will discuss and vote on these proposed bylaw amendments during the Society's upcoming convention, which will take place in Las Vegas from Sept. 28-30. Please take time to read the proposals linked to on this page and share them with your chapter members.

As stated in our bylaws, only delegates in attendance at the convention will be allowed to vote on the proposed amendments. There will be two business sessions at the convention during which the proposed bylaw amendments will be debated and voted upon by the verified chapter and regional delegates.

Proposed bylaws amendments may be amended at the convention, provided that (1) such convention amendment is approved by two-thirds of delegates voting and (2) the convention amendment does not change or add to the general subject matter of the proposed bylaw amendment.

For more information or questions about the proposed amendments, please use the contact form below.

Go here to see a copy of SPJ’s current bylaws.
