PFWA Chapters

The PFWA has established local chapters in each NFL market to assist members, monitor each club’s adherence to the NFL Media Access Policy (2020 version) and increase PFWA membership by qualified media personnel. Each chapter’s executives will work with their local club’s public relations staff and will communicate with PFWA officers on issues relating to coverage, all in an effort to fulfill the PFWA’s mission statement to promote and fight for access to NFL personnel to best serve the public.

Several chapters give local “Good Guy” awards each year to players for qualities and style in helping pro football writers do their jobs.

Each local PFWA chapter holds elections for a president and vice president to serve two-year terms.
