Do journalist associations enhance the profession?
Each year, journalists across the globe join associations and organizations that offer members benefits including legal and professional support, professional training opportunities, the chance to network with other journalists and more.
While some journalist organizations successfully promote and protect the role of journalists in society, others have faced hurdles due to governments' unease with press freedom and transparency.
Do you feel journalist associations have helped defend your rights as a journalist? Are you a member of any journalist association(s)? If so, has the membership enhanced your career?
If possible, please mention your country and any associations with which you are affiliated.
