New: Spring conference in Chicago

The Society of Professional Journalists is proud to offer cutting-edge professional development for everyone in the journalism industry. With the coming spring, SPJ continues this tradition with its 2010 spring journalism conference in Chicago, Ill., that is specifically held for journalists from Illinois, Indiana and Kentucky. The conference is March 26-27 and will offer plenty of great programming for all attendees, from seasoned professionals to students.

Spend the weekend with fellow journalists networking and learning from the industry’s best and brightest. Three outstanding speakers are confirmed for the event; click here to learn more about their backgrounds and the issues they’ll discuss. The conference also features professional development sessions on a variety of issues like freelancing, multimedia, journalism ethics and new journalism business models.

A special thank-you to Loyola University Chicago (Downtown Water Tower Campus) for their in-kind donation of meeting space.  The event will be co-hosted by the Loyola University Chicago student chapter of SPJ.
