Time is running out!
Capitolbeat’s 2007 statehouse reporting conference Aug. 2-4 in Philadelphia is less than a month away! If you know you are coming, but just haven’t gotten around to registering or reserving your room at the Doubletree Philadelphia (Group code: CBM), hop to it! The special conference rate of $159 a night is only available to those who book their rooms by July 12. After that, you will get stuck with a higher rate. Reserve your room now!
Thanks to a generous grant, Capitolbeat has scholarship money to help cover registration, travel and/or hotel costs for minority journalists. But you have to register for the conference in order to apply! The deadline has passed, but we still have some money available, so hurry up and get to it.!! Winners will be notified ASAP. And for all you east coast reporters, remember that we do have a special $100 day rate if you are only able to drive or take the train in for Friday’s sessions or Saturday. Credit cards are accepted for all registration options.
