The hurricane Katrina disaster and the apparent failures of government have brought new attention to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. But for generations, the Corps has been a controversial agency with an impact on the environment and economics of almost every state in the union.
To give journalists some insights on how to approach this unique and ubiquitous agency, the National Press Foundation is proud to present a seminar featuring Michael R. Grunwald, a Washington Post staff writer who has become one of the leading journalistic experts on the Corps. Paul T. Johnston, a Corps public affairs official, will appear as well. Grunwald is also author of “The Swamp,” a book focusing on the history of the Everglades, to be published by Simon & Schuster in February 2006.
Plenty of time will be set aside for questions, and as with all NPF seminars, everything is on the record. A continental breakfast will be served beginning at 9 a.m.
THERE IS NO FEE, BUT YOU MUST MAKE A RESERVATION. SEATING IS LIMITED TO 20 PEOPLE. A MINIMUM OF 15 IS NEEDED. PLEASE RESERVE EARLY.
If you wish to attend, email NPF at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 202-663-7285. Give your name, organization, contact number and email. The National Press Foundation office is at 1211 Connecticut Avenue NW, Suite 310, about two blocks north of the Mayflower Hotel.
The National Press Foundation is an independent non-profit organization offering professional development programs for journalists since 1975. This on-the-record briefing is underwritten by the David Swit Endowment, honoring the late founder of the Washington Business Information, Inc., publisher of business newsletters.
