Register soon for the SPJ Regional Conference in Seattle April 9-10

Take advantage of a brand new benefit for AAJA Seattle members by registering for the regional conference of the Society of Professional Journalists on April 9-10 at the Bell Harbor Conference Center in downtown Seattle.

The regional conference gives journalists in Alaska, Oregon, Washington, Idaho and Montana an opportunity to network and receive hands-on training. The conference includes a social hour on Friday night and training sessions, workshops and an expo  on Saturday.

Under a new reciprocity agreement with the Western Washington SPJ chapter, AAJA members pay the same  discounted conference rate as SPJ members. Professional members pay $75 while student members pay $35. That’s a savings of $15 from the nonmember rate.

The deadline to register for the conference is March 31, but for those looking for a place to stay, a discount price for rooms at the Hotel Monaco (at $119 a night plus tax and parking) expires Friday. To reserve a room book through the hotel’s Web site or call 206-621-1770.

Check out the conference Web site for more information or to register.
