I’m writing to let you know about the Illinois Community College Journalism Association, housed at Eastern Illinois University, which offers training and celebrates student work by those reporting for student media across the state. We hold two conferences to help train students and advisers – in October and April. And we also hold an annual contest, which is judged by professional journalists across Illinois. You can learn more about us at this revamped website or by calling the executive director, Joe Gisondi, at 217-581-6003. You might instead want to contact our board members, whose names are cited at the top of this website. We look forward to talking with you. BTW, the membership form and a flier for the fall conference at EIU is also included in MEMBERSHIP section down the right column of this page.
