Save the date for our regional conference

The committee planning our Region 11 spring conference in San Francisco is working hard to make sure the trip is worth your while, so please set aside the weekend of April 17 to join us. We expect to have an announcement by the end of next week about the venue, workshops and speakers. We’ve scheduled Saturday, April 18, for a full day of programming and for the presentation of our prestigious Mark of Excellence Awards for the region’s best college journalism. We’re also considering a nighttime reception on Friday, April 17, and some optional sightseeing on Sunday, April 19.

Our venue remains in flux because the site we had chosen came back to us with a contract total higher than we expected, so we are pursuing a range of options and will pick a site very soon and share it with you.

As for the MOE Awards, judges have begun their work and expect winners will be announced next month.

We will post more information when we have it on our conference website and the website of our hosts, SPJ NorCal. We will have discounts for early-bird registration, students and SPJ members.

Thanks for your patience as we wrap up our planning. Looking forward to having a big group in April. Any questions, please email me at with the subject line “Region 11 conference.”
