This year’s Region 11 Conference is hosted by SPJ’s Northern California Chapter, which offers programming and support to Bay Area media professionals, and works to inspire and educate current and future journalists through professional development.

Each year, SPJ NorCal recognizes outstanding journalism with the Excellence in Journalism Awards and the James Madison Freedom of Information Awards, created to highlight efforts that protect and preserve freedom of expression and governmental transparency.
