Is it time to update the SPJ Code of Ethics?

Come share lunch with fellow journalists, served with a helping of journalistic ethics!

The Virginia Pro chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists will celebrate Ethics Week (April 24-30) with a brown-bag talk by Kevin Smith, the national past president of SPJ and a journalism professor at James Madison University.

Kevin will discuss the SPJ Code of Ethics, last revised in 1996, and whether it’s time for an update. Technology has brought new ways to gather, present and report news and information, so maybe the ethics code needs to address that. He’d like to hear your thoughts.

Date and Time: Wednesday, April 27, at 12 noon
Place: Richmond Times-Dispatch, downtown Richmond
What to Bring: Your lunch. Drinks will be provided.

Seating is limited to 30 people, so click here to register for this free event today.

Parking is available in the Richmond Times-Dispatch parking deck. Please arrive early and let the parking deck official know that you are attending an SPJ function. There is also metered parking and limited hourly parking on the streets surrounding The Times-Dispatch.

See you there!
