    Planning has begun for the NLGJA 2017 National Convention. The convention will be held at the Loews Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, September 7-10, 2017. This year we plan to provide over 30 workshop opportunities to over 350 conference attendees.

    While a more in-depth schedule will be available once the list of workshops has been finalized in Spring, a schedule overview can be found here.

    NLGJA requests sessions proposals for the development of the educational portion of the conference. Past session topics have included heteronormativity in sports, personal finance, and reporting on LGBTQ health. Learn more about requirements and how to propose a session here.
