Special cocktail hour for journos, March 24 in SLC

Our Executive Branch has kept local and national media on our toes since Jan. 20, and it appears we’ll remain in that position for the next 3 years, 11 months and change. (Not that anyone is counting…)

Journalists need to know about their rights now more than ever.

The Utah Headliners SPJ chapter is hosting a conference March 24-25, including a Friday cocktail hour with legal experts on hand to field your questions.

The session is included with your $25-$35 registration fee, so this is an added-extra to a full day of useful sessions and panel discussions tailored for Western journalists.

Oh, and it includes refreshments. We’ll say it again for you starving college students out there: There will be free food.

Panelists include attorneys Jeff Hunt and David Reymann, from Parr Brown Gee & Loveless, and Ed Carter, director of BYU’s School of Communications. Hunt and Reymann have helped Utah media with a host of open records battles and they help host the state’s open records hotline. Carter specializes in issues of communications, copyright and media law.

The event is from about 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Peery Hotel at 110 Broadway in Salt Lake City.
