Try the National Press Photographers Association and the Society of Professional Journalist as well as the American Society of Media Photographers
I am a double major in art and journalism and the photography editor for my student newspaper. It is a lot of work but also a lot of fun. The others are right on working for a newspaper. I think working for a magazine would be more satisfying. One may be able to still use film in some magazines but for newspapers its unfortunately out of the question.
Make sure that you take some journalism classes and not just photography
classes. They will help a lot with understanding news and make you more employable.
