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– held then (and now) at the Georgia State University Student Center.
That event was two days and featured 24 speakers from the world of journalism. In 2013, MMC expanded to include producers, editors and directors from the world of music, film and television. In 2014, designers, fashion entrepreneurs and literary figures were added.
