CAJ annual conference costs $$$

February 3, 2012

I got this email the other day:

Hi. I was reading your blog today and wanted to ask if you could help publicize the conference and invite readers/journos to attend.

Registration is now open, and it is going to be a great three days April 27-29 at the Royal York Hotel, in conjunction with Newspapers Canada.
We’ll have a panel on editorial vs advertorial,  covering the oil sands, new models for hyper local journalism,  freedom of information, who is standing up for journalists, magazines and the digital environment, Twitter tricks for journalists, HuffPo Canada One Year Later, Social Media Optimization, and more. Plus the Gala Awards ceremony Saturday night.
Thanks for helping spread the word

Consider the word spread.

Of note, the event coincides with both the Ink & Beyond trade show and the Canadian Community Newspaper Awards. So if you’ve already managed to convince your publisher to pay for a plane ticket to Toronto to accept your CCNA, it might be worth attending. But it still won’t be cheap:
