SPJ tries to help laid off journalists stay involved
By Dave Aeikens
The SPJ board on Saturday decided to offer a helping hand to existing members who have lost their jobs.
The organization will extend memberships for six months for certain people. To find out if you are eligbile, you must apply using this form.
This is a very difficult time for all journalists especially those who have been put out of work as the business struggles financially. This policy, which is good for one year, is intended to allow people in a difficult spot to continue their memberships while they look for their next job in journalism.
