Call for SPJ Convention Sessions
Is there a panel, workshop or session youve wanted to see at the Society of Professional Journalists national convention, September 2-5, 2021? Now is the time to submit your ideas.
Were looking for programs (panels, sessions and workshops) that are original, informative, topical and will have the audience involved and engaged in the conversation. Were looking for a program that involves interesting teaching and learning activities. Our session organizers should be experienced and knowledgeable about the topic for the program and be able to put together a panel of speakers and presenters. Were also looking for diverse voices to be involved.
When putting together a proposal, allow the SPJ Strategic Plan Core Four to be your guide:
– We are Champions for Journalists.
– We are Fighters for the First Amendment.
– We are Stewards for Ethical Journalism.
– We Are Producers of Journalisms Future, which includes new and diverse voices.
Our members want to learn from our sessions. An interactive, engaging program would be best suited for the SPJ21 convention. Every year, SPJ gets numerous proposals for panels/sessions. Its very competitive. Now is the time to think outside the box and propose an idea that is creative, fresh and interesting. Good luck!
