Invitation to Apply for Free Workshop from CFR

Dec 5, 2018

The Council on Foreign Relations has asked PRNDI to help spread the word about an upcoming free workshop aimed at helping local journalists draw connections between international events and community issues.  This is the invitation from CFR:

Dear Colleague:

As a nongovernmental, nonpartisan, and nonprofit organization, the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) promotes a balanced perspective of international relations and America’s role in the world. To that end, we invite you to apply to participate in a free workshop for journalists at CFR’s New York headquarters from Thursday, January 17 to Friday, January 18, 2019.

The goal of the workshop is to draw the connection between local issues in your community and international events. The workshop will feature expert briefings on issues of local concern, networking opportunities with your colleagues from across the country, and discussion groups on how we can support the important work you are doing at a time of significant upheaval within the news industry.

The workshop is free, and we will cover roundtrip travel to New York and one night in a hotel for selected applicants. To apply, please send an email to with the following information:

  • Full name
  • Professional title and affiliation(s)
  • Target audience and reach of the news organization(s) to which you contribute
  • Contact information where we may follow up with you

For questions, please reach out to Kate Griesemer at or 212.434.9564. We hope you will consider applying as space is limited. We forward to hearing from you by Wednesday, December 12!

Best regards,


Irina A. Faskianos
