APSE’s Northeast Region is holding its fall meeting on Thursday, Nov. 16, at Quinnipiac University’s York Hill campus in Hamden, Conn.

Here is the agenda.

10 a.m. Coffee and donuts

(for editors) 10:30 a.m. to 11:45 a.m. Pay to read: With the rise of subscription sites like the Athletic and with athletic departments and pro teams producing more and more content, how does that affect more tradional media outlets. Boston Globe sports editor Joe Sullivan leads this session with Greg Bedard of the Boston Sports Journal and Mike Enight of UConn on the panel.

(for students) 10:30 a.m. to 11:45 a.m: Getting into the workforce: Post-Star (Glens Falls) sports editor Greg Brownell leads this session for students, taking them through the process of resume-building, looking for a job, going to interviews and getting started in your first job.

12:30 p.m. to 1:45 p.m. Stick to Sports: We’ve done a lot of versions of this panel, but it’s worth doing again as politics keeps crashing into sports. Quinnipiac professor Richard Hanley leads the discussion with Greg Bishop of Sports Illustrated.

2 p.m. to 3:15 p.m. Women in sports: Cam Newton’s treatment of Charlotte Observer reporter Jourdan Rodrigue was just the latest example of the difficulties women in sports media face.
