#NABJ14 Programming and Convention Committees Set Webinar on Proposal Guidelines
Team Will Share Guidance for Successful Submissions

Washington, D.C., (October 22, 2013) – The National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ) is preparing for its annual signature convention convening in Boston on July 30-August 3 at the Boston Sheraton Hotel, and announced the 2014 Convention and Programming committees will host a webinar to provide direction for proposal submissions.

"This will be a great opportunity for potential submitters to learn about content themes, and what the Committees want to see in applications,” said Deirdre Childress Hopkins, Programming Committee chairperson.

The Boston theme is Revolution to Evolution: Shaping Our Future.

Childress Hopkins said that the programmatic content is a significant determinant of the convention’s success; she wants to ensure members have an adequate chance to align their ideas with the committees’ vision.

Convention chairperson, Charles F. Robinson, III agrees.

"We want all of our members, be they journalists, media and PR professionals, or sales executives, to benefit from great convention programming,” Robinson said.

"We have been very careful to make this process inclusive so that everyone can have a part in shaping #NABJ14. We hope members will join us for a great discussion and learn key insights for assembling a winning proposal,” Childress Hopkins said.

The webinar, titled Workshop Proposal 101, is scheduled for Wednesday, Oct. 30 at 8 p.m. Attendees can register online at to join the discussion.

The deadline to submit workshops, interactive sessions and learning labs for the Boston Convention is Dec. 1. More information about the Call for Proposals is available on the 2014 Boston Convention tab at
