SPJ DePaul is starting its fall membership drive. For only $42.50, you can join the national chapter and our student chapter and receive many benefits, including:

  • Free admission to campus chapter events and programming
  • Discounts on campus chapter T-shirts and other swag
  • Networking opportunities with professional journalists
  • The SPJ.org jobs database, a subscription to Quill magazine, webinars and many other SPJ national organization resources

Our chapter had 63 members in it for 2011-12, making it one of the largest chapters in SPJ Region 5 (Illinois, Indiana and Kentucky). Our chapter was honored as the 2011 National and Region 5 chapter of the year, and has won many campus awards for its programming.

Joining is easy, just a couple steps:

1) Go to this page on the SPJ national website. Register and pay online ($37.50 for national dues; $5 for SPJ DePaul).

2) Fill out this form and email it to SPJ DePaul adviser Mike Reilley at mreille1@depaul.edu.

Once your national registration is processed — it takes about two weeks — and you’ve sent Reilley your completed form, you will receive a welcome email and be added to our contact email list for future events.

In the meantime, make sure to follow us @spjdepaul for updates!
