INDIANAPOLIS — The National Association of Hispanic Journalists (NAHJ) will partner with the Society of Professional Journalists (SPJ) and the Radio Television Digital News Association (RTDNA) at the annual Excellence in Journalism Conference in 2013 in Anaheim, Calif.

Earlier this week, the SPJ and RTDNA boards both voted to approve the partnership. NAHJ’s board met Oct. 19 and voted unanimously to approve its participation at EIJ13.

“I’m excited about the opportunity for NAHJ to work with two well-respected associations in producing a conference that will be dynamic and engaging for all of our members,” said NAHJ President Hugo Balta. “Our members asked for a national conference with better programming at a reasonable price, and the board and staff have answered.”

Vince Duffy, chairman of RTDNA and news director at Michigan Radio said, “We are very excited to have the NAHJ be a part of EIJ13. Another strong journalism organization joining us will allow us to create an even better conference for all of our members.”

“While all three groups will maintain their unique conference events, together we will produce a major journalism event,” said SPJ president Sonny Albarado. “This should draw all journalists that are eager to discuss challenges facing the profession and gain new skills and knowledge to help them meet those challenges.”

The Excellence in Journalism conference will be in Anaheim, Calif., Aug. 24 to 26.

Founded in 1909 as Sigma Delta Chi, SPJ promotes the free flow of information vital to a well informed citizenry; works to inspire and educate the next generation of journalists; and protects First Amendment guarantees of freedom of speech and press.
