An important debate will take place at the SPJ’s National Convention this Thursday-Sunday regarding voting. It is called “One Member, One Vote.” You can read all about it here.
It is the Utah Headliners Chapter position to vote for the “One Member, One Vote” change. The current system of electing national SPJ board members is one of delegates that is not particularly fair for smaller chapters such as ours. It is our hope that with this change in voting procedures, every member of our organization has a voice in the election of our national representatives.
We welcome any feedback from our members.
