Join AFJ in Phoenix, Sept. 26 - 28, 2018

Stay tuned for details about the 2018 annual AFJ meeting in Phoenix. Our conference committee has been working hard to provide you with a program designed to improve your journalistic toolbox while shining the spotlight on stellar culinary talent. We anticipate sharing the agenda and registration details no later than March 1, 2018. 


So many opportunities, so little time. The programmatic content takes place Sept. 26 - Sept. 28, but you may want to extend your time with us. 

Consider arriving early on Tuesday, Sept. 25. We'll soon announce a special event taking place that evening that is limited to the first 75 registrants. 

With the support of a generous sponsor, we are planning an overnight excursion departing Saturday, Sept. 29, returning Sunday, Sept. 30. We can't wait to spill the beans about this trip available at a minimal cost to AFJ members. Please note, only AFJ members in good standing at the time of registration will be eligible to attend the excursion. Partners will be able to attend for a nominal fee. Complete the 2018 AFJ membership application form now and take advantage of our 10% discount code, available until Dec. 31, 2017.  

We secured a special AFJ rate at our host hotel, the Sheraton Grand Phoenix. Once we open conference registration we will provide a link for the AFJ hotel rate registration.
