The Press Club of Long Island hosted the SPJ Region 1 Conference at Stony Brook University on March 23-24.
More than 50 guest speakers presented lectures about journalism and communications. Columnist Ellis Henican delivered the keynote address during the conference.
As a member of PCLI, I was on the Conference Committee and assisted as a Student Advisor for the #R1C2012 Working Press student-run news group.
I am attending SPJ’s Excellence in Journalism conference in New Orleans this year and blogging about the experience on PCLI.org.

Check back at the end of the week for a link to photos from New Orleans and the conference.
