Society of Environmental Journalists 18th Annual Conference

The Society of Environmental Journalists (SEJ) is holding its 18th Annual Conference from October 15-19, 2008. The conference is being hosted by Virginia Tech at The Hotel Roanoke and the theme is: "From the Appalachians to the Oceans."

SEJ is bringing together a diverse selection of tours and concurrent sessions, including one the biggest and best collection of computer lab sessions ever. Energy and climate will be a major focus, with a special emphasis on coal. They will hear from some of the top writers, scientists, industry speakers and environmentalists discussing mountaintop removal, water contamination, sludge pond hazards, air pollution and carbon sequestration. More than 800 people attended last year's conference in Stanford, California, which generated immediate stories and sources for our members.
