Excellence in Journalism 2020

SPJ, RTDNA to offer virtual opportunities in lieu of in-person conference for 2020

The Excellence in Journalism team has been monitoring COVID-19 developments — particularly guidance from the WHO, CDC and Washington, D.C., Health Department — closely.

Based on the best information currently available from health experts regarding the ongoing pandemic, we have reached the unfortunate conclusion that it is not feasible to host our in-person learning event as planned this year.

We are disappointed we will not be able to gather in Washington, D.C., this September, but our first priority is protecting the health and safety of our members, trainers, exhibitors and constituents.

SPJ and RTDNA remain committed to providing quality professional development, connecting journalists and industry leaders and recognizing excellence in journalism.

Each organization will be offering enhanced virtual learning and networking opportunities throughout the year. Visit RTDNA.org and SPJ.org for more information about upcoming learning opportunities and updates to scheduled programs.
