A Conversation With Labor Secretary Thomas Perez
Labor Secretary Perez will address some of the most pressing issues in the nation’s economy today, including the job market and workers’ wages. He has led the Obama administration’s push for increases in the federal minimum wage at state and local levels while Congress has resisted such calls. Even as the job market has continued to heal since the financial crisis and Great Recession, Perez acknowledges that there’s “unfinished business” in improving the lives of the nation’s workers.

Lunch Keynote - To Hell and Back: The Path Forward for the Housing Market
Eight years after the U.S. housing market hit bottom, a full recovery remains out of reach. Yes, the worst is over, with mortgage defaults back to normal and prices rising. But now comes a new set of challenges. Tight credit has shut broad swaths of the population out of homeownership, including many minority households. Millennials who came of age during the collapse aren’t rushing to buy in. Lenders are still nursing wounds, builders haven’t made up for lost time and the mortgage infrastructure is languishing in intensive care. Our speakers show us what’s next for housing and what it means for the rest of the economy.

Back to the Future: The Rise of E-Newsletters
You've got mail. Or at least, an emailed newsletter. In an era of social media, apps and other high-tech news-delivery strategies, seemingly old-school e-newsletters are coming into their own and developing their own voice. They are smart, informative, snarky and fun. They are also an increasingly important way of getting content directly to readers. This session will examine the news media's embrace of newsletters. We'll look at why newsletters matter, what they seek to accomplish, how to do them well, and what journalists as individuals can learn from this trend.

Covering the Business of Pot

The legalization of marijuana in a growing number of states means marijuana is becoming big business. According to Bloomberg’s 2015 weed index, pot represents a $3 billion market in the U.S.

Reynolds National Center for Business Journalism at the SABEW conference, you’ll learn how to locate financial data for what is mostly a cash business conducted in a complicated regulatory environment.

Exploiting Mobile in Surprising Ways

Mobile phones have quickly emerged as the dominant platform for the consumption of news, presenting a series of challenges and some big opportunities for journalists and media organizations. The challenges are well-documented: More readers are arriving via social media than from news websites or apps, often spending less time and developing less loyalty to particular media brands. Simultaneously, the proliferation of mobile devices presents opportunities to deliver rich journalism at a moment’s notice to larger, more engaged and often younger audiences.

Three executives at the vanguard of mobile news will offer tips on how to build and maintain audience on mobile, intelligence on which types of stories perform best, and the importance of authenticity in mastering mobile. Zachary Seward leads product development at Quartz, which recently launched a much-heralded app that offers a newsy twist on traditional messaging applications. Heidi Moore previously directed business coverage at Mashable, which was designed from inception to thrive on the social platforms that proliferate on mobile. And Allison Morrow is an emerging-media editor at The Wall Street Journal, where she oversees the editorial team that curates the WSJ’s pioneering Snapchat channel.

Tough Calls: Ethical Decision-Making for Business Journalists
During this interactive session, we will walk through real ethical issues facing today's business journalists. Panelists Janet Guyon, a freelance editor who recently left TheStreet; Glenn Coleman, executive editor, CBS MoneyWatch; and Brian Moss, Reuters will grapple with dilemmas using hypothetical scenarios, and audience members will be able to weigh in with their thoughts and questions. Topics will include use of social media, balancing journalism values with business pressures, and issues of journalism independence such as sponsored content.

This session, historically one of the most popular and thought-provoking at each spring conference, aims to help attendees be better-prepared to evaluate their choices when they confront real-life tough calls of their own.

Offered in memory of former SABEW President Gary Klott, who died in 2003. He spent considerable time educating members on proper ethical conduct. Seminars have been done annually in his honor.
