NABJ TwitterChat For First-Time Convention Attendees

By Benét J. Wilson, chair, NABJ Digital Journalism Task Force & social media/eNewsletters editor, Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association

You’ve bought your registration, booked a flight and hotel and are well on your way to your very first 2013 NABJ Conference in Orlando. But that’s just the beginning.  The last thing you want to do is show up at the conference without knowing the lay of the land.

So on Tuesday, June 25 from 8:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. EST, NABJ Digital Journalist Task Force Secretary Kiratiana Freelon (@Kiratiana) be your guide to navigating the convention via a  TweetChat.

Under the hashtag #nabj13prep, the @NABJDigital twitter handle will work with our panel of convention veterans to answer all your questions. They will also chat about their experiences at past conventions — all in  140 characters.

The panelists are: Brittany Geneva Cummings (@BrittanyGeneva), an associate producer for CNN; Michael Feeney (@mfeeney), a reporter for the New York Daily News; and Kirstin Garriss (@ReporterGarriss), a reporter at WHAG-TV.

The hashtag to follow along is #NABJPrep13.  I strongly suggest using so you can easily follow the conversation.  And if you can’t make it? Don’t worry – there will be a Storify of the chat.  So bring all your questions!
