Limited amount of tickets still available for the Sunday sessions
of SPJ REGION 1 CONFERENCE
There are still a few tickets left for our Sunday session of the SPJ Region 1 Conference April 21-22 in Philadelphia. The two-day tickets are sold out but those interested in attending our special Sunday sessions at Temple University can still get tickets. Price is $20. The Sunday session is open to the public.
The theme of the conference “For the LOVE of Journalism,” reflects both our passion for our chosen profession and a growing public appreciation of how the role of a free press serves in a democracy.
We are in Philadelphia, the “city of brotherly love” where so many of the founding principles of our free press took root – from Benjamin Franklin’s “Poore Richard’s Almanac” to the Constitution and the First Amendment.
Sunday’s program is:
12:30 – 1:45 p.m.
- Building Trust with the Public: New Tow Center Research (panel discussion) – Atrium
