t-chapterhowtoWelcome to our official SPJ Region 12 conference website!

The University of Arkansas’ Razorback country will be our hosts April 11-12 as we celebrate the best Mark of Excellence journalism entrees and take some time to hear and learn from some of the  brightest in our field.

We’re bringing in people from all over the country, such as Little Rock, Los Angeles, Oklahoma City and Washington, D.C., to help students and entry-level reporters looking for that first internship or job.

You’ll hear from two of Arkansas’ most beloved and well-known journalists who paved the road for the state’s sunshine laws and covered the civil rights movement, White House and presidential campaigns.

At a time when most newsrooms no longer cover science, we’ll have a panel to discuss covering science in our everyday beats. You’ll hear from a broadcast veteran with two decades of experience share lessons learned, including covering tornado wreckage.

Data and investigative experts will share some of the latest tools to navigate, analyze, visualize and convert gobs of complicated information into useful tidbits for news consumers.

So don’t miss out, click here to register, and if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to reach me at SPJTony@gmail.com.

Hope to see you in April!

Tony Hernandez
Region 12 Director
