Back on Jan. 11, the Digital Journalism Task Force produced a BlogTalkRadio show on this year’s convention and career fair. The show featured convention chair Rod Hicks, programming chair Dr. Sybril Bennett and Philadelphia Association of Black Journalists President Sarah Glover, who all discussed what members can expect at this year’s event. We also took questions from members interested in submitting panels and workshops.
So as the deadline for proposals fast approaches, we thought it would be a good idea to do another show on Monday, Jan. 24 from noon to 1:00 p.m. EST. This session will feature Programming Chair Dr. Sybril Bennett and NABJ VP-Print Deirdre Childress. Are you still working on a catchy title? Do you have a question about finding the right panelist? Do you want to make sure your proposal is relevant for this year’s theme: “The Power of Now: Claiming Your Destiny?” This session will allow members to ask those questions and more to help fine tune that final proposal. The call-in number is (347) 989-8344. I hope you’ll be able to join us!
