SPJ Region 10 Spring Conference in Portland
Join SPJ Region 10 for a day of education, camaraderie and fun at our annual spring conference, held this year at the University of Oregon's White Stag building in downtown Portland.

Panels and workshops will cover the ins and outs of modern journalism, for students and professionals alike.

During lunch, journalism students from across the region can celebrate their hard work at the Mark of Excellence Awards.

Questions can be sent to spjoregon@gmail.com.

Please join us for a gathering on May 2 to kick off the conference. It will kick off 7 p.m. at the Rialto Poolroom in downtown Portland, a few minutes from the conference location at 529 S.W. Fourth Ave. Your fellow guests will be in the upstairs balcony, but feel free to hang out in the downstairs area as well. It'll be a blast.
