Canadian Association of Electronic JournalistsRTDNA@50 – The Future of Electronic Journalism – Electronic journalism has come a long way since the 1900s. We have supplanted print as the way most people get their news, added pictures (and impact), and have transitioned into web-based media as well, extending our reach. We’ve brought war, peace and everything in between into people’s homes in an effort to make them better informed. We have a lot on which to pride ourselves! Check out the RTDNA’s National Conference, June 21-23, 2012 in Toronto, Ontario while they celebrate over 100 years of experimental and commercial electronic journalism. Find out where they’ve come from and their accomplishments as a medium along the way – those things are truly shaping our future!

This year’s National Conference in Toronto highlights include:

5 Minutes with a News Director
Back for a second year our popular “5 Minutes with a News Director” session features radio and television News Directors who meet with different young job seekers. Conceptually similar to how “speed dating” works, session attendees would move to a new news director every five minutes. The session is a perfect opportunity for job hopefuls to get advice, ask questions, and network.

The evening also includes an Awards Gala that will likely include winners from radio stations in Alberta. See more at www.rtndacanada.com/CONFERENCE/default.asp
