DEADLINE TO REGISTER: Tuesday, October 3, 2017

Welcome to the Fall 2017 INBA Convention! If you are a regular to INBA conventions, we are trying something we haven't done for awhile: a day of workshops. If you are new to INBA, welcome! We hope you enjoy this opportunity for networking and professional development.

You can choose how many or how few of the workshops to attend. Please register for the workshop you want to attend so that we can prepare enough materials. Please bring a laptop if you are going to participate, these are hands-on sessions! Debora Wenger from Google News Lab and Charles Minshew from Investigative Reporters and Editors will be our instructors.

Our keynote speaker on Saturday night will be Cheri Preston, of ABC Radio, and also a Quincy native.

We will also explore Muslim-American relations at the Islamic Center in Quincy on Sunday. There will be a panel discussion, a Halal meal and observation of prayers.

Sign up today and remind your friends and colleagues to do the same. See you in Quincy!

There is a cost to attend the covention, but please also register for the workshops so we know how much space to provide. The workshops are listed as free, but they are an add on to the regular convention price.

BRING A LAPTOP for hands-on training.
