New York Press Club Foundation’s Conference on Journalism

The New York Press Club Foundation’s annual Conference on Journalism returns to NYU's Kimmel Center for its 24th annual outing on Saturday, October 29th. The J-Conference is New York's most affordable, accessible and informative gathering of journalists, journalism students, academics, and those in the know.

After a continental breakfast for all attendees, the Conference begins with the Plenary Panel, “The Press and the 2016 Presidential Election,” where a panel of political reporters, media critics and political insiders will offer an honest critique of how well the press has been covering the candidates. Six breakout sessions follow: Podcasting, Millennials and the Media, Reporting from Conflict Zones, Digital Media: Keeping it Legal, Food Journalism, and Sports Reporting. A hot lunch follows the breakout panels and our Keynote Speaker will close the program.

It’s an indispensable opportunity to hear from experienced journalists in their fields of expertise and to spend a day with mentors, colleagues and friends learning from the best. Come back each week for more Conference details.

Friday, October 7th
5:30 PM to 7:30 PM 
The Century Association 
7 W 43rd St, New York, NY
