Hey, we want you, we really want you. How often does a freelancer get to hear those words?
Well, the freelance committee wants people to raise their hands for things that need doing as we transition to a community. (Read more about our in-progress community here.) Like social media? We want people to pitch in on our Twitter account, and decide what other social media presence we need. Want to see some great new offerings? We need a development group to talk with organizations that want to provide SPJ freelancers with various services.
Passionate about the nuts and bolts of running a freelance business? We want your input. Want to see webinars of interest to the various freelance groups within SPJ? We’ve got a window of opportunity right here.
Love talking about design? We’ll soon have a new design that needs vetting.
The Freelance committee will be reaching out to those of you who’ve contacted us about helping with this transition, and if you haven’t told us you’re interested, now’s a great time to speak up. Contact Freelance chair Michael Fitzgerald or vice chairs Anna Pratt and David Sheets at our email addresses on the navigation bar.
Unfettered access to those in power, a push for government transparency and a vigorous defense of the First Amendment are perhaps more important now than ever before. Join us as we fight for the public’s right to know as an SPJ Supporter. Or, if you’re a journalist, we welcome you to stand with us as a Professional, Student or Retired Member.
