DNC Blogger Credential Conference Call Tuesday

Just in from the DNCC:

We’re hosting a conference call on Tuesday to talk logistics. We’ll answer your questions about the credentialing process and we’ll give you a more clear picture of what to expect in August. Join us. And if you have friends or colleagues who plan to blog the Convention, please extend the invitation. We’re eager to see more bloggers apply for spots in the Press Gallery – but the application deadline is approaching.

Tuesday, April 1, 2008 at 3:30pm ET

RSVP with your name, the name of your blog, and URLs to OnlineTeam-at-DemConvention.com. We’ll e-mail you the call-in number prior to the scheduled call.



The 2008 Democratic National Convention takes place in Denver from August 25-28. But there are other important dates on the horizon. April 15th will be the final day to apply for blogging credentials through the DNCC Press Gallery. Credentials will be assigned in May. Bloggers will be credentialed as part of a State Blogger Corps or as part of the General DemConvention Blogger Pool. (Believe it or not, there are still a few states and territories without Blogger Corps applicants.)

Make sure you know the facts – and apply for credentials today. I hope you can join us for Tuesday’s call.

    Sure hope I have something great to celebrate!

    And I also hope there's no question that you will be there, Jeralyn, fully credentialed and blogging your fingers off...having the benefit of the trenchant stylings of BTD would be the icing on the cake.

    I have applied for credentials (none / 0) (#5)

    for the general blogger pool, not the 50 state pool, since TalkLeft doesn't focus on Colorado issues. But, no one is assured of credentials. There will be many more applicants than credentials available. We'll see in May!

    "and the winner of credentials in the general blogger pool (not to be confused with the wading pool) is............(drum roll)...........TalkLeft!"

    "accepting on behalf of TalkLeft is Ms. Jeralyn Merritt, wearing a stunning pair of beat up levis, and calluses on her fingertips."

    "i want to thank the credentials committee for this award. it wouldn't have been possible without the efforts of BTD, and most especially my loyal band of posters. you like me, you really like me!"
