Resources for conference planners


SPJ’s Regional Conferences are day-long professional development meetings bringing area journalists, students and journalism educators together in one place to hear from industry experts on topics ranging from improving writing to leveraging technology in today’s new media climate. Networking opportunities at the conferences allow participants to build relationships that can lead to the sharing of the best practices in newsrooms. Enhance yourself and your journalism career by attending a Regional Conference in your area.


For conference planners

Help from HQ

The national organization offers a grant, not to exceed $500, to cover costs associated with each conference. In order to receive the grant, after the conference, please submit receipts. Submit the receipts to Chrystal Parvin. Please include a cover sheet itemizing the submitted receipts along to whom the check should be made payable and where it should be sent. Requests to be submitted by July 31.
