SLA News Division conference planner Amy Disch reminded us of the reception at the Library of Congress’ Newspaper and Current Periodical Reading Room and offered a potential discounted Newseum tour based on interest. RSVP to her by June 1.
“The News Division’s last scheduled event during the SLA conference is a reception on Tuesday evening, June 16 in the Newspaper and Current Periodical Room of the Library of Congress from 6 to 8 p.m. Our host will be Georgia Higley, Head, Newspaper Section, Serial & Government Publications Division. Many of you have sent me your RSVPs, so thank you! If you’re interested in attending and haven’t contacted me, please send a message to adisch at dispatch dot com by June 1.
I have decided to add one more item to your conference to-do list, a tour of the Newseum on the morning of Wednesday, June 17. With a group of ten or more, we can get a discounted admission rate of $16 per person.
Please let me know if you would be interested in attending the Newseum tour by June 1 and if you have any other conference questions, please let me know.”
