Univision’s Chiqui Cartagena will be a keynote speaker at Reynolds Week 2015.

Whether you’re covering money or teaching it, YOU are the kind of person who should attend Reynolds Week 2015.

Choose from two tracks, for #moneynerds of all stripes:

Strictly Financials, a deep dive into financial and business topics for journalists, whether you cover money topics as a regular beat, or just on an occasional basis.
Business Professors Seminar, for people teaching at the college level who plan to teach finance topics, or want to include business journalism and money coverage in their curriculum.

Reynolds Week will be held Jan. 5-7, at the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication at Arizona State University in downtown Phoenix. (Did we mention this is in Phoenix, in January?)

Tuition, lodging and most meals are covered by a $1,500 fellowship for those who are accepted. You only need to cover your airfare.

If you’ve come before, don’t let that stop you from returning. Past participants are welcome to reapply.

This year’s conference will feature a full lineup of fresh material and dynamic speakers including Chiqui Cartegena, vice president of corporate marketing for Univision. Cartegena is a Hispanic media and marketing pioneer with 25 years of experience developing publications appealing to Latinos, including People en Espanol.

She is the author of Latino Boom! and Latino Boom II.  She plans to bring a wealth of data and offer help on story ideas for journalists and assignments by professors.

Bonus: Reynolds Week participants will receive an autographed copy of her latest book.

Both sessions also will receive deep-data dive presentations taught by Dianne Finch, a Bloomberg News veteran and professor at Elon University whose data visualization seminars have been wildly popular around the country. Plus, you’ll hear from many other instructors, presenters and editors on topics such as CEO compensation, teaching business for broadcast and understanding entrepreneurs. (And, you’ll get to visit Phoenix. In January.)
