This year SPJ Rio Grande is hosting the SPJ Region 9 Conference, in concert with the UNM SPJ Student Chapter.

We’re inviting journalists from Colorado, Utah, Wyoming and West Texas in addition to New Mexico. The dates are April 5-6, at the UNM Continuing Education Conference Center in Albuquerque.

Members of your chapter are putting together a packed two days of workshops, speakers, networking opportunities and breakouts. Topics include:

  • Reporting on the climate crisis in the West.
  • Covering cannabis, from business to health to justice.
  • The border: Reality vs. perception.
  • Collaborating across the urban-rural divide.

We’re also planning happy hours, a silent auction and a special headliner guest!

  1. Hello Dianne, click on the green “register” button on the page, choose “individual” and it takes you to a page where you select which workshops you’d like to register for. Simply choose “1” in the dropdown for those you’re interested in. The “free friday” ones don’t add any cost to your total but please do select them so we have an idea of attendance. Further down you’ll see options like “SATURDAY — Professional Journalists” and “-Students” and “-General Public,” select the one appropriate for your status. Then checkout. — John R. Roby.

  2. Is there an agenda with the times listed for Saturday’s sessions? Trying to figure out if I can drive in that morning or if I have to stay Friday night.

  3. That should be finalized in the coming days, we’ll update the times here. — John R. Roby
