Our SPJ western region spring conference will start exactly five weeks from today, and I’m proud to announce that our first day of programming is set — and stellar.

That first day on April 17 will feature a trio of intensive, hands-on, half-day workshops — on data mining, data security and data visualization — that are just the first of many reasons to register for the conference today.

First-class first-day instructors include Associated Press data journalist Serdar Tumgoren and Center for Investigative Reporting senior editor for data journalism Jennifer LaFleur,  who will show you how to dig into everything from tweets to census data and campaign finance records at our data mining session; Cyrus Farivar, senior business editor at Ars Technica, who will guide you through safe and confidential data storage at our data security session, and Silk‘s Alex Salkever and Tableau‘s Jewel Loree, who will teach you how to analyze and embed data sets into your work in eye-popping ways at our data visualization session.

Learn more at our conference website. Check back for updates on our second day of programming and information about a tour of Twitter HQ we’re setting up for Friday morning before the half-day workshops.

It’s sure to be a weekend of inspiring panels and incredible networking.

Register now to get the early-bird discount.

And be sure to buy a ticket to our Mark of Excellence awards breakfast scheduled for Saturday, April 18, when we will recognize dozens of students from more than 15 colleges in SPJ’s region 11.

Hope you come to San Francisco in April to hang out with the cool cats.
