The first ‘Reporting the U.S Workpace’ program at the Newmark J-school in NYC was held Jan. 9-10, 2020. The program pays all expenses including transportation, hotel and food. We were unable to run the program in 2021 due to the pandemic, but we hope to run the program again in Fall 2021 or Winter 2022. Please email us to be added to the email list.
