#PMJA2024 Washington, DC!

NPR HQ - conference venue

Join your public radio colleagues at NPR HQ in Washington, DC June 5 - 7, 2024 for #PMJA2024: LOCAL NEWS, STRONG DEMOCRACY!

We want to focus attention on how local news plays a vital role in strengthening democracy and build the capacity of public media journalists as they cover the 2024 elections.

"Local News, Strong Democracy" is about informing and engaging communities while building trust and understanding. It is a call to hold candidates, elected officials and institutions accountable while combating misinformation and disinformation.  It aims to amplify the voices of marginalized groups.



Venue & Hotel

The Morrow Hotel

Clear your calendar because you won't want to miss the amazing facilities at 
NPR HQ located at 1111 North Capitol Street, NE, Washington, DC.


You can go ahead and make your reservations at our conference hotel, The Morrow, located a mere third of a mile from NPR.  We know how much you loved last year's hotel, so we made sure that breakfast is included in your room rate!

Book your room now

Just a heads up that rooms are a little pricey this year, and finding availability might be tough since things are booking fast.

To help out, we've created the Slack channel #pmja2024-dc-at-npr specifically for attendees to connect and potentially find roommates!

Here's how it can work for you:

  • Looking for a roommate? Post a message in the #pmja2024-dc-at-npr channel with your details (arrival/departure dates, preferred hotel area, budget, etc.).
  • Have an extra space? Let others know in the channel if you're open to sharing your room.

By working together, we can make #PMJA2024 more affordable and ensure everyone who wants to attend can!

PMJA welcomes conference attendees whether they’re at the start of their career journey or are already established in the field.
