The Society of Professional Journalists is preparing a Code of Conduct for its members to foster a friendly, safe and welcoming culture. At the direction of the SPJ board, a seven-member task force plans to have standards for expected behavior in place by the annual convention in Las Vegas on Sept. 28.
As part of its work, the task force seeks input from SPJ members. Please fill out the short, two-question form to send us your comments. Links to other organizations’ codes are provided below.
Based on their research, task force members will draft guidelines to present to the board for consideration.
We appreciate your involvement in SPJ and in this effort.
