Sessions on the new populism, what makes good election coverage and a panel of local candidates discussing what they think should be covered during campaign season are a few of the sessions being planned. Sessions on the 2010 Census and redistricting and what’s beyond the 2010 election also will be on the program.

Registration for non-member papers is $75 for the first and $65 for each additional person from that newspaper. Registration can be made by e-mailing John Ryan, executive director, jmryan@eiu.edu.

Participants will also need to make reservations at the conference hotel, the Millennium, 200 S. Fourth St., St. Louis, 314-241-9500. The MPI rate is $106 a night.
