Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Wherever you live in North Carolina, political decisions that affect your life and the issues you care about are made at the state legislature in Raleigh. Even professional journalists find it hard to follow all the deals and happenings that go down on Jones Street if they’re not closely familiar with the place and its customs -- and if they’re not physically present in the rooms where things happen. In this workshop, Kirk Ross will provide a densely informative guide to decoding and contextualizing everything from the state budget to committee meetings to those down-to-the-wire bill negotiations -- even if you’re hundred of miles away.
