EIJ discounts + training (and lots of it)

By Ellen Kobe, SPJ Communications Department



The Excellence in Journalism conference in Southern California has some great deals, and we don't want you to miss out.

Book your hotel room by Aug. 1 to receive the discounted EIJ group rate. Rooms are available until the block runs out. Sign up for the conference before Aug. 8 to save $100, as well as avoid long registration lines on site.


Headed to DC for the 2013 AEJMC Conference? What a coincidence: so are we! SPJ will be hanging around the Expo Hall talking to current advisers about how to make their campus chapters better, and chatting it up with potential advisers about why an SPJ chapter on their campus is so important. Be sure to stop by Booth 309 and ask questions or share your favorite SPJ story.


Since 1909, SPJ has been improving, protecting and discussing journalism. And now that we're living in the 21st century, we can blog about our favorite topic.

Here are the latest updates to the SPJ Blogs Network:

Zombie Journalism by Michael Koretzky, Region 3 director (This is about an really cool-sounding conference/program in New Orleans. So it's definitely worth a read.)
FOI Daily Dose: Virginia county supervisor questions closed meeting discussion by Kara Hackett, Pulliam/Kilgore Freedom of Information intern
Tips to Expand Your Source Network and Develop Great Story Ideas by Georgiana Vines, Diversity Committee member
Ruling Against New York Times' James Risen: Horrible by President Sonny Albarado
Shield law counterpoint: 'I opposed the federal shield law then, and I oppose it now' by Mac McKerral, past SPJ president
Words of Wisdom from SPJ Leader and 2012 Diversity Fellow by Tony Hernandez, Region 12 director


Don't forget about the training resources we offer you right in your own home. Our On Demand videos will keep you up to date on skills necessary for the field - basic video techniques, smartphone journalism and personal branding. Begin by logging in with your member username.


On a business beat? Check out a fall schedule of free training in business journalism from the Donald W. Reynolds National Center for Business Journalism. Whether you're looking for training in investigative business journalism, SEC-document digging or social-media sourcing, the Reynolds Center has you covered this fall.


What social network site did White House photographer Pete Souza join this week, giving journalists, political junkies and citizens more access to presidential goings-on than before?

Answer: Pete Souza joined Instagram. View his work here.

And the winner is ... Rochel Lead Goldblatt, a postgraduate member from the campus chapter at University of Nevada-Las Vegas. Congrats!
