Let’s talk about YOUR conference
We’re already planning Capitolbeat 2008, our annual conference, and you can help.
(For those who don’t know already: Nov. 13-16 in Raleigh, NC.)
As I’ve written before, we’re hoping to get some input from our members about what exactly you’d like to learn and hear about. Members of the board and the conference committee think we have some good ideas, but we don’t know everything.
So let’s hear from you. There are really no limits to this discussion:
- Do you have a keynote speaker in mind that you’d like to hear from. Personally, I’m a fan of a proposed Ron Paul – Dennis Kucinich super-panel, even though it would have little to do with statehouse reporting. Let’s hear your best ideas, even if they’re out there.
- Is there some editing, writing or multimedia skill that you don’t have in your repertoire that you really want to learn? Let us know and we’ll try to find an expert on it.
- Is there some subgroup that you would like to have a lounge session with this year? Lone gunman and editors are already slated for a little group therapy, who else should we get together?
Like I said, it’s your conference. If there’s something you’d like to see happen, let us know early enough and we’ll try to do it. Please join the discussion via the comments link or send me an e-mail.
