Fall 2018 Conference Information

Information for you regarding the Oct. 23 fall conference. Registration here.

Where is the conference?

The conference is at Saint Louis University again, but this year we are using the Busch Student Center, as the Center for Global Citizenship was unavailable. All breakout sessions will happen in buildings near the BSC, so no students will need to cross Grand.

What is the schedule for the conference?

While we are still coordinating speakers, here is the tentative schedule for the day’s events:

  • 8:30-9:00: Check-In
  • 9:00: Welcome
  • 9:15-10:15: Keynote
  • 10:25-11:10: Session One
  • 11:20-12:05: Session Two
  • 12:15-1:00: Session Three
  • 1:00-1:45: Lunch

What is the cost of registration?

Current members of journalismSTL can register for $12 per person. Non-member registration is $20. 

Do we have to stay for lunch?

No. You can register for the conference only, without lunch for $7 per person ($15/person for non-members).

What about the adviser lunch meeting?

We moved the member adviser meeting to during a session so advisers are able to assist with lunch supervision and distribution. The specific session time is TBA.

Will we receive paper copies of session schedules this year?

We will continue to use the Yapp app for the conference schedule, as we have the past few years. Encourage your students to download the app prior to attending the conference. A digital copy of the schedule will also be sent to advisers in advance and you are welcome to print copies for your students who need one, but we will not have paper copies available for students at the conference.

Why do I have to pay the registration costs for students who do not attend?

We base our lunch order off of the number of people who register for the conference. Even if someone doesn’t show up, we still have to pay for the food we ordered for them.
