How do I participate as a voting SPJ member?
In the past, chapter delegates elected officers and board members. Now all members can cast their own vote via an online voting system.
How do I hear about the national SPJ candidates?
Because each member, near and far, has the ability to vote for officers, candidates have a few ways to spread their message:
— SPJ Headquarters sent you emails over the past several months introducing all your candidates and directing you to their online information. https://www.spj.org/elections-candidates.asp
— During EIJ17, members can view candidate speeches online.
— Candidates may have blogs or social media accounts where members can connect with them.
Check out our SPJ Region 3 candidates for national office:
Jason Parsley, running for SPJ President-Elect
Michele Boyer, running for At Large Director
Michael Koretzky, running uncontested for SPJ Region 3 Director
How do I make sure I can vote in the national SPJ election this year?
Because the system requires electronic voting, we need to make sure we can reach every member via email. Make sure your email address is current by logging on or by contacting Tara Puckey, Associate Executive Director firstname.lastname@example.org
So, how will I vote? THIS WEEK EMAILS WILL BE COMING Out explaining the voting procedures that will take place, SEPT. 7 – 9. WATCH FOR THEM.
Voting will take place electronically during the Excellence in Journalism 2017 conference, Sept. 7-9. Additional instructions will arrive via email, so make sure that information is up to date!
