SPJ, RTDNA and NAJA call for proposals for Excellence in Journalism 2016 conference in New Orleans Sept. 18-20

Posted by Rebecca Landsberry on 12/03/2015

The Radio Television Digital News Association, Native American Journalists Association and Society of Professional Journalists are now accepting program proposals for their Excellence in Journalism 2016 conference through Jan. 27, 2016. If you have an idea for a conference session and are interested in taking part in the conference, NAJA members should submit proposal after reviewing the guidelines and information posted at https://www.spj.org/eij-callforprograms.asp.

SPJ/RTDNA/NAJA will determine the time that programs are presented. Programs will be scheduled for September 18-20 in New Orleans after the selection process.

Producers whose programs are accepted will have the opportunity to indicate what days/times work best. But generally producers should prepare programs that could be presented on any of the conference’s three days.

SPJ/RTDNA/NAJA does not provide honoraria for speakers at the conference. Speakers are responsible for their travel and lodging expenses. Speakers are also responsible for their conference registration fees. The only exception to the registration fee for speakers is for the speaker who is attending for their program only. In that situation, the speaker’s registration is complimentary (no meals are included).

After the proposal review process is complete, email notifications will be sent around late February to mid-March to those whose proposals were accepted. Email notifications for declined proposals will be sent around the same time.
