The Media Consortium: 2014 TMC Annual Conference: February 27-March 2, Chicago
Jan 9, 2014

The Media Consortium is pleased to announce that registration is open for our annual conference. Join us in Chicago, February 27-March 1!

Now in its 7th year, the Media Consortium’s annual conference draws decision makers from the leading independent news organizations. Join publishers, editors, and executive directors from Mother Jones, Orion, Truthout, In These Times, Raw Story, AlterNet, the New Press, KCETLINK TV, Rabble, Dissent, and many others to discuss the issues facing the independent news sector.

The first day of the conference, February 27, will focus on in-depth fee-based workshops. In an innovation, you not only choose your workshop–you choose the price you are willing to pay!

A reception then kicks off a 36 hour networking event like none other. No need to try to nab people in the hallways–at the Media Consortium conference, an entire afternoon is given over to working groups and open discussions. Drop into a group or set up your own! And, with all this, get ready for selected speakers who offer rich content and panels that speak to you as a peer.

We know price matters, so this conference is low-cost. For Media Consortium members, Friday and Saturday are free–and you pay what you want for workshops on Thursday. If you aren’t a Media Consortium member, you can attend just a workshop, or get workshop and conference access for one very low price!

Our hotel for this conference is the well-appointed Wyndham Blake in the heart of the Loop. Rooms with the Media Consortium discount are just $99/night!

So don’t delay:

See you in Chicago!
