The National Association of Real Estate Editors‘ 45th Annual Conference will be held in San Antonio, Texas, on June 15 through June 18 and will feature a two-part class on mastering Excel to analyze public data to uncover real estate trends.
Award-winning journalist Mary Shanklin, a past NAREE board member and a writer at the Orlando Sentinel, will lead the Excel training labs. Shanklin has taught computer-assisted reporting at conferences for Investigative Reporters and Editors and the Education Writers Association, among others.
Other professional development sessions will include: how to build a prolific social media presence in 30 minutes a day; how to “make it to the top” of news organizations today; transitioning to a second career as a publicist in either the business or nonprofit arena; and tips for launching a real estate news website.
NAREE board member and San Antonio Express-News Business and Real Estate News Editor Emily Spicer is putting together a panel to look at “Historic Preservation – Profit and Non Profit Motives.”
Sessions on “The Growing Latino Market;” “The Multi Family Boom;” “Property Rights and Wrongs” and “Green Building Trends” will touch on factors affecting both the urban grind and suburban rings.
The “Excel on Deadline” class is part of a rich agenda of professional development programs to enable journalists, both freelance and staffers, to thrive in today’s news environment. Session pre-registration is required. Please notify Shanklin at MShanklin@orlandosentinel.com and cc to NAREE Executive Director Mary Doyle-Kimball at MADKimba@aol.com.
The Excel on Deadline course is limited to 24 registrants – first come, first served. Upon successful completion of the “Excel on Deadline” course, registered class members will receive a NAREE Certificate of Achievement.
