> SPJ Elections | Boyet for Director At-Large

Society of Professional Journalists' national board elections are September 7 to 9, in conjunction with our convention in Anaheim. All SPJ members can vote. Watch your email for an electronic ballot.

— Why vote for me?

A successful board needs a group of qualified people with an array of skills—and our board is lacking when it comes to digital media. You might say I’m no longer a traditional journalist, and that’s just fine. But the board needs someone with my skillset: a writer and communicator who deeply understands social media, branding, website UX and email marketing. We’re an organization who represents talented journalists who communicate all day, yet we can do so much more to communicate to our members and the public.

I’ve been a part of SPJ on the local level for the past eight years, proudly serving on the SPJ Florida board. We’ve won Chapter of the Year three times since 2010 and launched successful events that have been recreated around the country. I’ve volunteered on the Day of Giving, Resolutions and Communications committees, but I’m ready to formally take my experience to the national level.
