First, some context: Excellence in Journalism is an annual conference hosted by Society of Professional Journalists, Radio Television Digital News Association and other partner organizations. (This year, that’s Native American Journalists Association.) It’s an opportunity for training and networking, and the Alabama Pro chapter has two board members at this year’s event.
Follow along on Twitter @spj_alabamapro, where we’re tweeting and retweeting information from this year’s event. I’ll recap here throughout the conference, and I intend to later share deeper insights from the sessions I personally attended.
Here’s a roundup of day one, sorted broadly by topic and focused on tips for practical application. Did you see something great we missed? Share it in the comments! Attend EIJ and want to share your notes? Email cjATcarlajeanwhitleyDOTcom. We’d love to make them available to our membership.
