The NAJA 2014 National Native Media Conference will be held July 10-13 at the Hyatt Regency in Santa Clara, CA. NAJA will partner with Native Public Media (NPM) for the second year to engage journalists and broadcasters though training sessions and panel discussions targeted at professionals in Native and mainstream media.
The San Francisco Bay Area location will offer conference-goers proximity to local attractions and recreation in Silicon Valley, which serves as the headquarters for hundreds of technology corporations and startups that have innovated the way we communicate in Indian Country and in the news business.
The 2014 conference will follow a dynamic 2013 meeting in Tempe, Ariz. More than 300 Native journalists, students, exhibitors, sponsors and educational partners gathered in July to examine issues ranging from covering the Affordable Care Act and the Violence Against Women Act to building skills in mobile video storytelling, investigative reporting and social media.
Attendees can expect networking, professional development opportunities and recognition of the best coverage of Indigenous issues at the National Native Media Awards banquet during Indian Country’s premier Native media event.
