Funke Egbemode, President, Nigerian Guild of Editors

Rivers State will host this year’s edition of the All Nigeria Editors’ Conference (ANEC 2017), which holds in Port Harcourt from Wednesday, September 20 to Sunday, September 24.

ANEC is the annual flagship conference of the Nigerian Guild of Editors (NGE). This year’s event themed: Nigerian Media – Balancing Professionalism, Advocacy and Business, will also have an extraordinary convention to adopt the reviewed NGE constitution.

The NGE has in recent years dedicated its annual conference to fostering and deepening discourses on national issues. This year, the Conference is focusing on the media as a major stakeholder in the nation’s democratic project.

Now in its 13th year, this is the second time that ANEC will focus solely on the media after its first edition held in 2004 in Ada, Osun State. The theme of the 2004 conference was: Ethics, Professionalism and the Nigerian Editor.

According to NGE President, Funke Egbemode, the choice of this year’s theme was a response to popular demand by members on the need for it to discuss the myriad challenges confronting the journalism profession and proffer lasting solution to them.
