Modern Media Conference

“IT BEGINS HERE” read the headline for the special section of the September 25, 2012 edition of The Signal, which served as the program for the first Modern Media Conference (MMC) which was held then (and now) at the Georgia State University Student Center. Since then, every September, MMC has expanded to include media participants ranging from producers, editors, directors, web designers and beyond.

The Modern Media Conference will resume a biannual schedule beginning this fall. For more information on past MMCs and to submit your feedback on the event’s future, contact Bryce McNeil in Student Media.
