Join us at the DoubleTree Suites Southcenter in Tukwila, WA on March 27th and 28th 2015 for a regional community media summit. What is community media? To borrow a concept from Zane Ibrahim, founder of Bush Radio in South Africa; he saw community radio as being "90% community and 10% radio." No matter which platform you produce media for, it applies.

ABOUT THE CONFERENCE
We're stronger together. For the first time, we're producing a summit where radio, television, online news, podcasters, bloggers, and independent media makers can discuss existing partnership models and develop new ones. We'll apply it to content, community engagement, fundraising, and infrastructure.
MIX AND MINGLE WITH OTHER MEDIA PROFESSIONALS
We'll have networking and mingling events both evenings. Join us for one or for both!
