The speaking schedule is largely set for ISWNE DC 2017. Make sure you register in print or online.
Dean Lucy Dalglish from the Merrill School of Journalism at the University of Maryland, College Park will welcome us, along with students from the esteemed program.
Rob Logan from the National Institutes of Health, Frank LoMonte from the Student Press Law Center and Tonda Rush of the National Newspaper Association will walk us through what they are watching.
Andy Alexander of Foothills Forum, a nonprofit news venture; Samantha Harman, for the Greenslade Bursary; Gordon Cameron, winner of this year’s Mazza Scholarship; and Bill Miller, winner of the Cervi award will give us the 411 on their activities.
A host of people at the Library of Congress will show us around the beautiful buildings and help us with the journalism history and culture found there.
Still I await to hear from others. I’ll let you know when I know more. –Steve Thurston, conference host.
Kelly Clemmer, former ISWNE board president and artist, stepped up this year with a great T-shirt design. Shirts are $25 on the conference registration form on the ISWNE.org website or with this online form.
Take a few minutes to check out the University of Maryland in this online virtual tour. ISWNEDC 2017 attendees will be particularly interested in the Stamp Student Union and Knight Hall pages since that’s where will spend some of our time.
