ONADC - the DC Area Online News Association Meetup Group Message Board › Coming to ONADC at NPR? Help us send a student to ONA12 (plus volunteer request)
New York, NY
Coming to NPR on Wednesday for the lightning talks? We rarely ask for anything from our wonderful meetup members, but we'd like to this time.
Wednesday, our volunteers will be asking for a $5 donation at the door. The $5 donation will be placed in a fund to help send DC-area students to the national ONA conference, which will be held in San Francisco Sept. 20 to 22. Your generous donation (you can feel free to donate more than $5 if that fits in your budget) will help cover travel, lodging and registration fees for deserving students.
All of any donation you make will go to students because NPR is graciously providing drinks and refreshments.
Still on the waitlist? We are still looking for volunteers to help with this event. If you are available, beginning at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, please let us know.
Also, as always, we ask that you please update your RSVP if you are unable to attend. We have a long waitlist for this event and would love to accomodate more people. Finally, do be sure to have a first and last name on your RSVP to assist NPR security.
The lineup includes:
Clay Johnson, formerly of Sunlight Labs
Javaun Moradi, NPR
Claire O'Neill, NPR
Michael Maness, Knight Foundation
John Bruner, Forbes
Tiffany, Laura and Matt
