Fall 2019 Convention

INBA's Fall 2019 Convention was held in Urbana, September 27-29.

We returned to Eastland Suites Hotel & Conference Center, the site of the Spring 2017 Convention.

Longtime WGN Reporter and Anchor Andrea Darlas was our keynote speaker at the Saturday night banquet. Andrea recently joined the University of Illinois as Senior Director of Constituent Engagement for University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, based at the Illini Center in Chicago.

We also had some great sessions planned on solutions journalism, cannabis legalization, reporter secrets to a great story, and more. Plus Gary Wordlaw, Vice President of News and Programming for the new Black News Channel, spoke speak during lunch on Saturday.

Thanks to all who attended!
