RTNDA, SPJ in talks to hold joint 2011 gathering

The Radio-Television News Directors Association (RTNDA) and the Society of Professional Journalists (SPJ) are in talks to hold a joint convention in fall 2011. The event would be held in addition to its annual RTNDA@NAB exhibition in 2010.

The concept behind the proposed gathering is to bring together journalists working across all platforms. "As our members are working with new partnerships across all media platforms, this is the time to cast off the old silos found in journalism conventions and bring working journalists of all kinds together, coordinating efforts and resources to reach the entire journalism community — broadcasters, print and online,” said RTNDA Chairman Stacey Woelfel.

RTNDA and SPJ are in the initial discussion stages of holding the joint convention in 2011. A city for the conference and specific sessions have not yet been agreed upon.
