See you in St. Louis

Just a reminder that we have a full range of programming for the COMJIG portion of AEJMC (no more alphabet soup, OK, I promise. really. honest. no foolin') in St. Louis next week.

To review:
Things start off Wednesday morning at 11:45 with a PF&R panel titled "Emerging News Ecosystems and the News," co-sponsored with the Newspaper Division.

Make sure to get plenty of rest because we have a full slate set for Thursday:
Our own Al Cross starts the day with "Going Digital, Going Mobile With Community Newspapers," a PF&R panel at 11:45 a.m.
That's followed by our Scholar-to-Scholar session at 1:30 and the refereed paper session at 3:15 p.m. Research Chair John Hatcher has more info on both of those.
At 5 p.m. is a panel titled "News With a View: Journalism in a Post-Objective World," co-sponsored with our good friends at the Civic and Citizen Journalism Interest Group (CCJIG).
But that's not all. Oh no, not by a long shot, so we hope you packed a snack in lieu of dinner because the joint biz meeting with the folks from CCJIG is at 6:45 and then the COMJIG exec board meeting is at 8:30 p.m. (Last year, the CCJIG folks brought a cake to the biz meeting. Chocolate. What do we have to do to get them to bring one again this year? Hmmm?)

Friday winds down with a session at 5:15 p.m. called "We Handle the Rest: Taking the Load off Independent Photojournalists." It's a teaching panel co-sponsored with (naturally) the Visual Communication Division.

See you in St. Louis.
