The RADIO TELEVISION DIGITAL NEWS ASSOCIATION and the SOCIETY OF PROFESSIONAL JOURNALISTS are holding a joint conference next year. The "Excellence in Journalism: 2011" conference will be held SEPTEMBER 25-28, 2011 in NEW ORLEANS.
"This is an extraordinary opportunity, not only for RTDNA and SPJ to team up, but for the entire journalism world to reap the benefits," said KEVIN, RTDNA's chair-elect and convention-planning chair. "We're working hard to bring journalists the best conference around."
"This collaboration between SPJ and RTDNA is unparalleled in the journalism community and it makes perfect sense," said SPJ President KEVIN Z. SMITH. "We are excited at the prospects of what this means for our members and where this can lead both organizations. Sharing our resources and creating the ultimate conference means attendees will enjoy the best training, networking and social opportunities of the year."
"Almost every electronic journalist we've spoken to about the 2011 conference is thrilled for two reasons," said RTDNA Chairman MARK KRAHAM. "First, that RTDNA and SPJ are teaming up and second, that we're moving our annual convention from city to city again."
