Are you going to be in Washington, D.C., next week during the Online News
Association annual convention?

If so, please join J-Lab, the Reynolds Journalism Institute and
National Public Radio -- for a FREE "Community News Caucus" networking
session for local online news community entrepreneurs. That's Thurs., Oct.
28, from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at NPR headquarters, 635 Massachusetts
Ave. NW


The two-day ONA conference (Friday/Saturday) is sold out. But if you can get to
DC for the full day on Thursday, there may still be room at J-Lab's day-long
set of two workshops, "Fund My Media 2.0" and "Plugging in to Networked
Journalism." Together only $90:


And the Community News Caucus networking event is a time bridge -- with hors
d'oeuvres and refreshments -- between the end of J-Lab's workshops at 5 p.m.
and the ONA opening-night reception at 8 p.m.

So join us -- but you have to register so we have a head count.
