It is Friday night, and SPJ associate executive director Chris Vachon and her staff are preparing for the three-day Excellence in Journalism conference that starts Saturday.
Vachon said she woke up at 4:30 a.m. for the final day of preparation, and she still will not be going to bed for a few more hours. There is still more setup to be completed in the expo-hall, she said. Following the final stages of setup, Vachon will host a staff meeting.
“In that staff meeting, we’re going to talk about everything tomorrow,” Vachon said. “Our job is to be kinda like the ambassadors, and my job is to make sure every staffer can answer every question on Earth.”
