EIJ19 Call for Programs and Ideas

The Excellence in Journalism Conference (EIJ), a collaboration between the Society of Professional Journalists (SPJ), the Radio Television Digital News Association (RTDNA) and the National Association of Hispanic Journalists (NAHJ), is ramping up for EIJ19 and we need your help for program development. The call for program proposals and conference ideas is now open. We greatly appreciate your thoughtful input and ideas for this conference.

The Call for Program Proposal and Ideas deadline is January 18, 2019.

Receiving your ideas by this deadline will give time for the program committee volunteers and staff to develop the conference program, which is a long process.


The deadline to submit program proposals and ideas has passed. Thank you to all who submitted!


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. In 2019, SPJ and RTDNA welcome the National Association of Hispanic Journalists as a partner for the conference. NAHJ previously joined the EIJ conference in 2013, 2015 and 2017.
