Get some learning this September

September 3, 2009

Did you miss our annual conference in Indy? Are you still struggling to learn the ends and outs of the stimulus package? Then come for some learning at the first of two mini-conferences this fall:

A State Economic and Fiscal Issues Forum

Co-sponsored by the Pew Center on the States and Capitolbeat

When: September 24-25, 2009

Where: 901 E Street, NW, Washington, D.C.

What: Join other members of the media covering state budget issues for a series of in-depth sessions that will describe states’ current and long-term fiscal pressures, examine the effect of the stimulus on the states and detail national and regional economic trends. You’ll learn about the go-to sources for state budget information, develop new story ideas and hear from top experts on critical issues facing states. Speakers include G. Edward DeSeve, Special Advisor to the President and Coordinator of Recovery Implementation; Jennifer LaFleur, director of computer assisted reporting at ProPublica; and Susan K. Urahn, managing director of the Pew Center on the States. Travel stipends are available.
