Creating Excellence with SPJ, RTDNA and NAJA

About the Excellence in Journalism Conference

Since 2011, the Society of Professional Journalists and the Radio Television Digital News Association have partnered to host an annual conference that provides journalists with the industry’s best training and networking opportunities. The conference was named the Excellence in Journalism (EIJ) conference in order to provide an opportunity for other organizations to partner with SPJ and RTDNA on the event. Following five successful Excellence in Journalism conferences, SPJ and RTDNA welcome the Native American Journalists Association (NAJA) as an EIJ collaborator for the 2016 event in New Orleans.

The Excellence in Journalism 2016 conference in New Orleans is set to be the journalism event of the year and will be host to top news professionals from broadcast, print and digital newsrooms around the country.

Who Comes to EIJ?

The EIJ conference attendees are the top professionals in journalism, including: newsroom decision makers, leaders, station managers, reporters, producers, content managers, editors, freelancers and educators — people who are looking to implement new technologies, software products and journalism best practices in their newsrooms as soon they return home from New Orleans.

Join us at EIJ16 in New Orleans and see for yourself how this annual conference is a must-attend event for the decision makers and journalists around the country!
