Each year, the CAJ’s national conference brings together journalists from across the country for two days of professional development workshops and panel discussions—not to mention a healthy dose of networking and making friends! This year we dive deep into how the idea of community is wholly intertwined within journalism’s DNA.  

We will be joined by Bettina Chang, one of the co-founders of Chicago-based City Bureau. She will give a keynote address on how her upstart organization is re-imagining local news by bringing journalists and communities together.

Ramon Escobar, vice president of recruitment at CNN will tell us how they’re tackling newsroom diversity and the challenges faced along the way.

As always, the CAJ will be continuing its tradition of offering delegates hands-on workshops lead by masters of their craft including: 

Angela Sterritt 

Cheryl McKenzie

Fred Vallance-Jones

Jana Pruden

Jesse Brown

Julian Sher

Sunny Dhillon

Shaneen Robinson 

Tamara Baluja

&more!

Sessions will dig into the essentials of local news reporting, self-care, narrative writing and data journalism. 

Whether you’re a fresh-faced new grad, or a long-time staff reporter; a news entrepreneur, or a freelance writer and editor, we are certain you will return home with fresh perspectives on the role journalists can play in a democratic society.

We invite you to be part of our community.

See you in Winnipeg!
