SPJ Digital approved by Board
The Board of Directors of the Society of Professional Journalists approved the formation of SPJ Digital, the community for social media and digital journalism Aug. 20.
The Board unanimously approved the formation of the community during a meeting via Skype, and also discussed revisions to the Code of Ethics.
SPJ Digital currently has presences on Twitter and a community on Google Plus, and is always looking for new members. If you are interested in joining SPJ Digital, you can send an email to this address or tweet @SPJDigital.
Alex Veeneman is a member of the Society of Professional Journalists based in Chicago. Veeneman also serves as Special Projects Editor and writer for Kettle Magazine, an online publication in the UK. You can tweet him @alex_veeneman.
Editor’s note: Veeneman was the SPJ member that filed the petition to form SPJ Digital.
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.
