NorCal Media Day: FAQs

Who can attend?

JEANC member advisers and their students are welcome to attend without cost. Advisers who are not yet members can join online before the conference or pay for membership on site.

How many students can one adviser bring?

Member advisers may bring as many students as they’d like. We simply ask that you have a reasonable number of chaperones, using your professional judgement, for your number of students. Please register for the event in advance so we have an accurate count for lunch.

Can students attend without an adviser?

As long as their adviser is a member, students may attend with another school-approved chaperone.

What’s the schedule for the day?

There will be four breakout sessions, a featured speaker, and a contest in the afternoon. Here’s the tentative itinerary:

9:00 am — Registration

9:30 am — Intro/featured speaker

10 am — Session 1

10:55 am — Session 2

11:40 am — Lunch

12:25 pm — Session 3

1:20 pm — Session 4

2:15 — Contests (optional, with fee)

For more details, a list of tentative list of sessions offered this year will be provided closer to the event.

What about lunch?

As a benefit of membership, a pizza lunch and water will be provided by JEANC for everyone in attendance.

Are there contests?

We have moved all of our contests to the end of the year in order to focus on learning new skills in preparation for producing exemplary work that can be entered in April.

Are there sessions offered for advisers? Can advisers lead sessions for other advisers or students?

There will be some adviser-specific sessions, including a UC approval workshop, a JEANC member meet and greet, and several topical sessions. We would love for member advisers to volunteer to teach sessions. To do so, simply complete our online proposal form.
