EIJ18 Call for Programs and Ideas

The Excellence in Journalism Conference — a collaboration between RTDNA and SPJ — is ramping up planning — and we need your help to make it happen. The Call for Programs and Ideas is open and taking your thoughtful input on what you want to see at the conference.

But hurry, because the Call for Programs closes on January 18, 2018. That’s right, the conference is September 27-29 in Baltimore, but the window to submit programming proposals closes in January.

Why is that? With so many ideas and so much to plan, it takes a lot of time and energy from hard-working volunteers (and staff) at RTDNA and SPJ to make it happen.

So get your ideas and program proposals ready — and get all the information below about how to submit your programming idea.

Call for Program Proposals

If you have an idea for a conference session and are interested in taking part in the convention, please submit your proposal. Use this form to submit specific program proposals with topic, content, and suggested speaker (even if yourself).

Call for Conference Ideas

Don't have a specific program to propose? No problem. Use this form to submit general conference topics and speakers you'd like to see without specific program titles or descriptions. The conference programming committee will use this feedback to develop specific programs.

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.
