Real estate reporters to meet in June in Washington

April 30, 2009

The National Association of Real Estate Editors will hold its 43rd Annual Real Estate Journalism Conference from June 18 to June 21 in Washington, DC.

The conference will include a freelancer forum, plus, NAREE’s leading bloggers and videocasters will show attendees how to get started and how to take it up a notch. There will be plenty of chances to network and brainstorm on the future of journalism, becoming an author, and the news of the day at lunch, during evening receptions and at thelate night NAREE Hospitality Suite.

More than 100 of the nation’s best real estate writers are expected — including winners from NAREE’s 30-category Journalism Awards Competition and Bruss Book Awards.

The ever-popular NAREE’s Meet The Press will offer freelancers, columnists, and publicists face-to-face mini meetings with editors and key real estate journalists for queries and pitches. Back for its 12th year, MTP is chaired by NAR EE past president, Sue Doerfler of the Arizona Republic, who also has an interesting story to tell about her new, highly acclaimed TV show after more than two decades as a print journalist.

“The guy who’s arranging all the DC Conference is NAREE’s chairman, Ken Harney, columnist with the Washington Post Writers Group. Ken has the biggest Rolodex inside the Beltway, and the reputation to land some great speakers,” says NAREE President Holden Lewis of Bankrate.com.
Speakers invited to NAREE’s 43rd annual conference include HUD Secret ary Shaun Donovan, and top officials from the FDIC, the Federal Reserve, and the Federal Housing Finance Agency. NAREE is arranging briefings on Capitol Hill with key members of Congress and their staffs.Â

NAREE will tour National Harbor, a 300-acre mixed-use project on the Potomac waterfront and the Forest City urban redevelopment on the Anacostia River.
