Conf: LPFM Radio Roundup
"LPFM Radio Roundup"
An event you won't want to miss!
October 8-9, 2005
Sunny weather, exciting workshops, and new ideas; with lots of nerking, socializing and good food! Register NOW!
The LPFM Radio Roundup will be held Saturday & Sunday on the UC Davis campus. Among other things, this is about helping build the LPFM movement, and about networking so that we can present a united front in a political climate that is often hostile.
We're not calling it a conference because it's a little more hands-on and a little less formal than most conferences. What attendees can expect is great information provided by real-life LPFM practioners and experienced media advocates.
Day 1: "The Low Power Radio Roundup"
will include three tracks: Production & Programming, Technical & Legal, and Outreach & Development; with several workshop sessions in each. The keynote speaker this day is Hannah Sassaman of Prometheus Radio Project.
Day 2: "Building a News Department on a Shoestring"
will offer a series of hands-on workshops where you will learn the ins and outs of radio news production. There are two tracks: *Management* and *Production*.
If you register in September, cost will be $35 for both days (or $25 for Saturday only, or $10 for Sunday only). Low-cost housing options will be available. (Look for that on the Registration Form.)
Based on a survey we did in June, we are expecting 60-75 participants, LPFM practitioners from around the region.
