Daniel Dale, Katie Benner and Amy King headline CAJ national conference

The Canadian Association of Journalists is pleased to announce its lineup of keynote speakers for its 40th annual national conference on May 4-5 at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Toronto.

Delegates will hear from the Toronto Star’s man in Washington, Daniel Dale, who will reflect on his exhaustive fact-checking of U.S. President Donald Trump during a tumultuous year south of the border. They’ll also hear from Katie Benner, a New York Times justice reporter whose coverage of sexual misconduct in Silicon Valley forced the resignation of a major venture capitalist. Amy King, who edits The Lily, will talk about building a community where women can engage the news—and be empowered in the process.

“These headliners do what journalists do best. They tell stories that matter, listen to their audiences, and operate at lightning speed,” said CAJ president Nick Taylor-Vaisey.

Registration is currently open for the two-day #CAJ18 conference, with early-bird fees starting at $251 plus HST for CAJ members for the full weekend, including a ticket to the conference banquet and gala. Rates for unemployed journalists and CAJ student members start at $75. Discounts are available for CAJ Award finalists as well those registering in a group. These early bird rates will rise on April 27.

 For those intending to stay at the Hyatt Regency Toronto, our conference room rates starting at $199 plus taxes and fees for a single or double room are available on request. Other preferential rates may also still be available.

The CAJ is Canada's largest national professional organization for journalists from all media, representing about 600 members across the country. The CAJ's primary roles are to provide public-interest advocacy and high-quality professional development for its members.
