The Society of Professional Journalists is dedicated to the “perpetuation of a free press as the cornerstone of our nation and our liberty.


Jonathan Jones, director of N.C. Open Government Coalition, speaks at chapter meeting.

The Greater Charlotte chapter mirrors the national organization in its mission: SPJ promotes the free flow of information vital to a well-informed citizenry; works to inspire  and educate the next generation of journalists; and protects First Amendment guarantees of freedom of speech and press.

Like the national organization, Charlotte SPJ also works to foster excellence in journalism and encourage diversity.

Our chapter meets the second Wednesday of every month at Dilworth Neighborhood Grille, 911 E. Morehead Street, in Charlotte. We’d love to have you join us at an upcoming event
(guests are always welcome) and by becoming a member.
