Let the CAR Conference countdown begin…

We can’t wait to see hundreds of you one week from today at the 2014 CAR Conference in Baltimore. It’s shaping up to be a great couple of days.

Here’s a preview of some of the great speakers, sessions and events you can look forward to:

 

KENDALL TAGGART

Taggart, from the Center for Investigative Reporting, will talk about investigating not-so-good nonprofits during a session at 9 am Friday, Feb. 28.

Listen to her talk about the value of former IT employees in this clip from the 2013 Hawaii Watchdog Workshop. Former employees can tell you if a request for electronic records is as difficult as the government agency claims it is. Often, Taggart said, it's not. IRE members can listen to the entire panel discussion here.

 

MANNY GARCIA

Naples Daily News Editor Manny Garcia will talk about guiding data-based stories from conception to creation as part of the panel discussion "More than an editor: Leadership for data-drive projects." Catch this session Friday, Feb. 28 at 11 am.

Garcia talked about successful story pitches at the 2012 IRE Conference in Boston.
