Journalism continues to change at breakneck speed and one of FCCJ's priorities is to provide professional development opportunities that will help members succeed in the evolving news environment.

The first three speakers are Ken Moritsugu, Associated Press News Director for Japan and the Koreas; Naoki Inoue, Teaching Fellow at Google News Lab; and Tina Saunders, Director of the Law Program at Temple University, Japan.

Seating is limited to the first 30 applicants. Free for members, 1000Y for non-members (please pay in advance). Complimentary tea and coffee.
