A legendary cast.

We’re bringing on White House correspondent and Washington Week moderator Yamiche Alcindor, journalism trailblazer and Latino USA anchor/executive producer Maria Hinojosa, and Pulitzer Prize winner and Chicago Tribune institution Clarence Page.

And that’s just the beginning.

Breakouts, workshops and some very super sessions.

We’ve got something for everyone in this year's schedule. Check out a schedule of breakout sessions, interactive workshops and super sessions, and stay tune for more announcements to come!


We are monitoring the ongoing situation with COVID-19, including the rise in cases in some parts of the country due to the delta variant. SPJ has already planned thoughtfully for a safe conference experience and will continue to assess the need to adapt to the changing circumstances. As a reminder, conference registrants must attest that they have received the full COVID-19 vaccine or receive a negative COVID-19 test within five days of arriving to the conference. Registered attendees will be notified of all virus mitigation requirements prior to arrival which could include mask mandates and social distancing. The city of New Orleans and the Hyatt Regency New Orleans have been great partners to SPJ in ensuring that attendees have a safe and positive experience.


In person or online, we’ll see you there

Stay tuned — we're just getting started, and we'll have a lot more to announce soon in terms of programming and special events.

Registration is now open! Sign up in minutes and join us in September.
