The Society of Professional Journalists Western Washington Pro Chapter is seeking applications for our board of directors. Board members are elected for two-year terms.
Board members are expected to attend monthly meetings, be active participants in at least one of three subcommittees, contribute to our goals and objectives, and help plan and execute events. As a board member, you will help encourage a climate in which journalism can be practiced more freely and fully, stimulate high standards and ethical behavior in journalism, and perpetuate a free press.

Our chapter’s board members will decide who is selected in a virtual vote, held in early August. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to reach out. If selected, we will request a headshot to go along with your bio for our website.

◾ Tell us about yourself.
