Check out the lineup of convention sessions

We’ve posted dozens of sessions and speakers, with dates and times, on the convention platform —
Covering student unrest and social-justice issues.
Bonding with your staff on Zoom.
New business models for news.
Narratives and storytelling.
Mobile photo and photo editing.
Editing for your digital readership and audience.

These are just a few of the great sessions with experienced, knowledgeable speakers — and more professional speakers than ever before, including speakers from USAToday, The New York Times and CNN.

Look at this way. At a past convention, you could attend just 14 sessions (unless you had superpowers, of course). This year, you’ll get access to dozens of sessions for an extra two weeks. That’s a great deal.
