NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF BLACK JOURNALISTS REGIONAL CONFERENCE COMING TO HOUSTON!

CNN’S ROLAND MARTIN WILL SERVE AS A GUEST SPEAKER!

The multimedia environment has changed the way journalists do their jobs and the way journalism schools prepare students. That is why NABJ is proud to invite journalists, media professionals and students to a daylong mini-conference, “Transforming Careers in a
Changing Industry,” on Saturday, April 12, 2008 at Texas Southern University’s Tavis Smiley School of Communication. The program features a Student Boot Camp in a multimedia environment designed to offer the next generation of journalists an edge as they find their places in this fast-changing world of communication. Our luncheon speaker, Roland Martin, is a multimedia journalist whose career embodies this year’s theme. Martin, a nationally syndicated columnist and Chicago-based radio host, joined CNN last year as a contributor to several programs on-air and online. He currently provides commentary and analysis on the presidential campaigns. The regional conference workshops will also help both young and seasoned professionals steer their careers in a new direction. The registration fee is $40 for NABJ members and $65 for non-members. Student members can register for just $25. All other students can attend for $40. Registrations processed online, via fax or credit card will be accepted through Wednesday, March 19. All other registrations will be accepted at the conference at on-site rates. Guests who would like to attend the luncheon only can buy tickets. They will go on sale soon.
