Moderators Needed for “Keystone Crossroads” Forum in Altoona, PA

The Penn Project for Civic Engagement is working on a statewide journalism initiative with all of the public radio stations in PA called Keystone Crossroads.

Penn-PCEL-logoReporters in Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Harrisburg and State College will fan out across the state to report on root causes and potential solutions for the Commonwealth’s urban challenges.

We are working with the folks at WPSU (State College Public Radio) to conduct a forum in Altoona and are looking for moderators. The forums are a chance for the public to give their input about the issues facing the places where they live, work and hang out.

Date, time and location for forum: Tuesday, October 7, 6:30 – 9:00 pm.

We usually ask moderators to arrive between 5:00 and 5:30 to give everyone an opportunity to meet and review the process. We will provide a pizza dinner. The location is the Devorris Downtown Center in Altoona.

Expectations of moderators – write a report (format attached) and submit within a week of forum, complete an invoice and W-9 form and give to Linda Breitstein.

Compensation of $250 should be received within 30 days of submitting report, invoice and signed W-9.
