Should SPJ’s national conference be virtual?

The SPJ national board of directors will be meeting soon to decide whether this year’s national conference in September will be on-ground in New Orleans as planned, a hybrid conference with some aspects taking place online, or entirely virtual, as the 2020 conference was.

This is also the first year in many years that SPJ is holding the conference on its own. (For many years the annual conference was shared with RTDNA and other journalism organizations under the name Excellence in Journalism.) In many ways, we’re starting from scratch!

SPJ National wants to hear from you about what you’d like to see in terms of the format. Click here to take the survey! Also, please note that proposals for conference panels and presentations are due on Feb. 12. Click here for more.
