Block by Block: Community News Summit 2012 is the annual gathering of independent online community news publishers sponsored by the Donald W. Reynolds Journalism Institute. Two staff members of independent online local news sites can get in free; everyone else has to pay $75. One more person can get in under Shorty: Your Chicago South Side Resource, my community site.
The site says that registration is closed. For those of you are really interested in attending, I would contact someone today and ask to be placed on the waiting list.
Volunteer opportunities may still be available. Visit WBD’s site or call them at (312) 853-3477 for more information.
Visit their site to check out the schedule of events and speakers. Many events are already full; however, keep an eye open for open spaces.
These are just some of the events that are going on in Chicago this month. If you know of other events, please add them in the comment section below with a link and I’ll check them out to determine if fit my site.
