All advisers are invited to attend the receptions Thursday and Friday evenings. The receptions are a great way to meet new colleagues and relax with old friends.
The Thursday Adviser Kickoff Reception, following the keynote speech, will give new and first-time attendee advisers a chance to meet the local committee, the JEA and NSPA board members and JEA and NSPA staffs. This informal reception will be from 9-10:30 p.m. Thursday’s reception is sponsored by the American Society of News Editors.
Friday’s reception will be from 8:30-11 p.m. and will feature desserts. There will be an auction/silent auction to benefit the Student Press Law Center. Those who are judging Write-off competitions are especially encouraged to attend after they finish judging.
