Membership

Becoming a GSSPA member will allow your students to be eligible for our NJ Journalist of the Year award or the Bob Stevens Memorial Scholarship.  They may also enter the Summer Newspaper Contest and attend the annual Fall Press Day conference at Rutgers University.

Membership also includes an invitation to attend the Spring Advisers’ Conference and the opportunity to participate in the GSSPA Executive Board elections.

Membership in the GSSPA costs $25 a year, which is included in the $40 registration fee for the Fall Conference. If you cannot attend the conference, you can renew or begin your membership by sending a $25 check (made out to the GSSPA) and membership form to this address:

GSSPA Membership, c/o Susan Everett
78 Lincoln St.
Jersey City, NJ 07307

For an additional $60, you can also join JEA (the Journalism Education Association). Visit www.jea.org to learn more about the benefits of membership in this national organization.

A GSSPA membership form is available online for you to print out and send in with your payment. (The form will open in a new browser window. After printing it out, close the new window, and you will be returned to this page.)

Also if you’d like to get more involved and help the GSSPA in planning the Fall Conference, send email to the Conference Coordinator, or print out this participation form, and mail it to us. (The form will open in a new browser window. After you’re done printing, close the new window, and you will be returned to this page.)
