During this session, we’ll cover things you know, things you didn’t know and things you’ll want to know, all at an incredibly rapid pace. We’ll cover helpful hints from the folks at HQ, tips and tricks about SPJ.org, one of your most valuable resources, and more.

Do you have a mantra? Remember why you decided journalism was it for you? In this session, we’ll dig a little deeper and figure out what keeps you going and what you can bring to the table because of it.
