• And an upcoming road trip to the SPJ Convention & National Journalism Conference Aug. 27-30 in Indianapolis, marking the group’s 100th anniversary.  She’s going, along with University of Alabama journalism professor George Daniels

Jenn says:

I went last year in Atlanta, and it’s really a great event. Lots of professional development and networking opportunities. I highly recommend it for anyone that can swing it.

Since we’ve been a chapter for a year, we get a vote in the national level elections this year.

Cost is $235 for members, $335 for non-members if you register by Sunday. Those interested in attending, carpooling or splitting hotel rooms — or just being added to the SPJ Alabama Pro mailing list — should contact her at alabamapro.spj[at]gmail.com.
