Society of Professional Journalists, Rio Grande Chapter

SPJ is the nation’s most broad-based journalism organization, dedicated to encouraging the free practice of journalism and stimulating high standards of ethical behavior. Founded in 1909 as Sigma Delta Chi, SPJ promotes the free flow of information vital to a well-informed citizenry through the daily work of its nearly 10,000 members; works to inspire and educate current and future journalists through professional development; and protects First Amendment guarantees of freedom of speech and press through its advocacy efforts.

The Rio Grande Chapter was reorganized in 2009 after a lengthy hiatus and is dedicated to becoming a force in our state for responsible journalism in all media, including practitioners from print, broadcasting, corporate communications, and online “new media.” We welcome writers, reporters, editors, photographers, producers, on-air talent, commentators, and communicators of all kinds who recognize the value of membership in an organization that holds the profession to strict ethical guidelines while standing up for First Amendment rights. The chapter territory includes all of New Mexico and the El Paso region of Texas.
