Often the best adviser information and advice happens during informal conversations around a luncheon table. For this opportunity, join the convention planning committee at the Friday Adviser Luncheon. Here is the opportunity to make new friends, ask questions and share experiences.
The luncheon speaker will be Adrienne Lavidor-Berman, social media producer at Boston.com and BostonGlobe.com. She will talk about the role of social media in news coverage and how the Globe used social media during coverage of the Boston Marathon bombings.
The Friday luncheon will be from 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Entrées include meat and vegetarian options. Mark your entrée preference on the online convention registration form.
The Saturday Adviser Awards Luncheon will be from noon-2:20 p.m. JEA, NSPA and Dow Jones News Fund will present their annual awards. New and renewing Certified Journalism Educators and Master Journalism Educators also will be recognized. Speakers will be the JEA Carl Towley Award winner and the Dow Jones National Journalism Teacher of the Year.
Entrée choices include meat and vegetarian options. Mark your entrée preference on the online convention registration form. Make reservations early, especially if you are to be recognized. The luncheon is sponsored by Herff Jones.
