Happy Holidays to Region 5 SPJ Members;

Spring Conference dates, programming ideas

 The holidays and end of the year always bring busy schedules, but please take time to look ahead and mark your calendars for the 2015 Region 5 Conference scheduled for Friday, March 27, to Saturday, March 28, at the Galt House in Louisville, Kentucky. President Robyn Sekula and the Louisville Pro Chapter are hosting the conference.

 Submit program suggestions by Dec. 20

We want your proposals for programming. Plans are for 12 programs, three per session with two sessions Saturday morning and two sessions Saturday afternoon. A variety of programs are sought to serve students and pros on a wide range of topics. The sessions may take any form from presentations to panels to workshops and focus on topics from diversity to technology to current issues impacting journalists. Not interested in presenting but have an idea for a topic you would like to see on the program? Send us those ideas, too.

 Send your ideas to Region 5 Director Deborah Givens at deborah.givens@eku.edu. If sending an idea for a program, just include the topic and any particular types of information in which you are interested. If submitting a program in which you will participate, send title, a brief description and speaker(s) list.

More conference info coming soon

Watch for more information on the Region 5 blog and through emails regarding registration, Mark of Excellence submissions and other conference news.
