On September 25-28, 2011, the Radio Television Digital News Association (RTDNA) and SPJ join forces to present the "Excellence in Journalism: 2011" conference in New Orleans.

The goal in establishing this conference is more than just creating a partnership between two of the premier organizations in the journalism world. It is to create the largest, most important national journalism conference of the year.

Held in one of the most dynamic locations in the United States - New Orleans, La. - the "Excellence in Journalism: 2011" conference will host more than 1,000 electronic and print journalists looking to add online and visual tools to their storytelling arsenals.

"This collaboration between SPJ and RTDNA is unparalleled in the journalism community and it makes perfect sense," said SPJ President Kevin Z. Smith. "We are excited at the prospects of what this means for our members and where this can lead both organizations. Sharing our resources and creating the ultimate conference means attendees will enjoy the best training, networking and social opportunities of the year."

The conference will feature dozens of workshops, from extended leadership training for newsroom leaders to hands-on advanced media sessions, taught by the best in our business. Additionally, our expanded exhibit floor offers attendees, vendors and guests a chance to interact at one of the best networking opportunities of the year.

"Almost every electronic journalist we've spoken to about the 2011 conference is thrilled for two reasons," said RTDNA Chairman Mark Kraham. "First, that RTDNA and SPJ are teaming up and second, that we're moving our annual conference from city to city again."
