CAMP 2017: Follow along from near and far with hashtags

By Lindsey Anderson, JAWS member

Bummed you can’t make it to Conference and Mentoring Project (CAMP) this year? You can still follow the goings-on in Hot Springs from afar.

Like all good journalists, dozens of attendees will be tweeting from each conference session. Check out the hashtag #jaws17 on social media for panel highlights and the low-down on the latest in journalism.

Even if you will be attending CAMP, following the hashtag is a fantastic way to keep tabs on concurrent sessions and to arrange meet-ups. Each breakout session also has a unique hashtag, which is listed in the program.

This year’s JAWS fellows will also create blog posts, videos and audio stories to recap conference sessions and speeches. These posts will be published on the CAMP blog within a day of the events.

And most importantly, the dates and location for CAMP 2018 will be announced next weekend. So keep your calendar handy and get ready to block out a weekend next fall for learning, networking and mentoring.
