Just before the 50th Annual SABEW Conference, the Donald W. Reynolds National Center for Business Journalism will offer a free workshop on April 4: Breaking Local Stories with Economic Data.
The free workshop will be at the SABEW Conference site: George Washington University’s Marvin Center in Washington, D.C., from 9 a.m. to noon.
Government data offer unparalleled opportunities to distinguish your reporting with trend stories about what’s happening in your local economy. Especially this year, with the release of the every-five-year Economic Census, journalists will have a unique opportunity to track changes in their local community from 2007 — before the recession — to 2012.
Instructors Paul Overberg of USA Today and Jeannine Aversa, late of The AP, now with the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis, will provide you with a road map to finding and delivering at least 15 local enterprise stories from government economic data. Examples will be specific to the Washington, D.C., region, but applicable anywhere. Sign up here for this free workshop.
