Where nonprofit news meets civic impact

It’s been four years since we last gathered together in person for INN Days. Since then, nonprofit news has sustained its growth, with more people served than ever before. The 400+ newsrooms of the INN Network have emerged from the global pandemic and a tumultuous election cycle with practices and visions to address ground-shifting changes within the world and communities they serve.

This year, INN will bring together news leaders, journalism supporters, and civic innovators in-person to explore how nonprofit news organizations are expanding services, refining funding models, and working collectively to achieve growth and civic impact.

Join us to participate in practical skill-building sessions and future-forward conversations that advance our shared vision of building a sustainable and impactful nonprofit news ecosystem.

One week. Same city. Two great conferences, back-to-back.

INN Days will take place alongside and in partnership with the Collaborative Journalism Summit, hosted by the Center for Cooperative Media. The summit will take place on June 6-7, followed by INN Days on June 8-9. 

Receive a discount when you attend both!  When you register for INN Days, you will receive a $50 discount registration for the Collaborative Journalism Summit. You must register separately to attend  both.

Conference Hotel Room Blocks

Part of attending INN Days is getting the opportunity to connect and spend time with your peers during off hours. That’s why INN has negotiated special room rates at three nearby hotels. Each hotel has a unique vibe and all are less than a 10-minute walk to the George Washington University Student Center. (Compare walking distances from each of the hotels.)

 Room availability at these locations are limited and first-come-first serve at the rates listed below.

Other Discounted Lodging

INN Days and Collaborative Journalism Summit conference-goers can take advantage of George Washington University’s hotel discounts. We recommend booking through the links on this university webpage to take advantage of discounted lodging for on-campus visitors.
