The Washington Journalism and Media Conference

Coronavirus Update 3/12/2020

The leadership at the Washington Journalism and Media Conference (WJMC) is working in tandem with the leadership at George Mason University to create a plan in response to COVID-19. The safety and well-being of our students is our number one priority, and we recognize that families registered for WJMC have questions and concerns about this summer.

At this time, we are planning to run the Conference. We have extended your deadline to cancel and receive a partial refund to April 15. Please know that if Mason is forced to cancel WJMC, all families will receive a full refund of the tuition paid.

We hope to have more clarity on the situation in the next month and will keep you all posted via email and social media. We appreciate your patience as we work through this situation and plan for the summer.
