Meet and Greet

JEA invites teachers and advisers to introduce themselves to one of JEA’s seven regional directors during the 9 p.m. Thursday kickoff reception. Look for your region’s table. It’s a great way to network with others in your region and offer suggestions on how JEA can better meet your needs as a journalism teacher. Attendees also will have a chance to meet convention officials and board meetings in a casual setting to connect names and faces so feel free to stop by briefly even if you are unable to attend for the full length of the reception. Those attending a JEA/NSPA convention for the first time are especially encouraged to stop by, as tips for getting the most from a national convention will be shared if you ask.
