Visitors are coming to town this week

Capital Press reporters from four Western states will converge on Salem this week. We will be holding our annual news staff meeting on Thursday and Friday, April 2 and 3.

The people who report on agriculture happenings around the region, the nation and even the world will be gathering to talk about what we do and how we do it.

The Capital Press is a bit unusual as a news organization in that we have as many of our full-time staff members based outside of our main newsroom as we have working in it. Eight of our reporters work our of field offices in California, Idaho and Washington. Two reporters, a photo coordinator and 4 editors work out of an office in Salem, Ore.

During our annual two-day meeting is the only time all of our full-time staff members get an opportunity to actually see each other and interact as a group without the use of telephone line or computer chat software or e-mail or other means to communicate.

If you have an comments or question you would like our staff to be aware of as we sketch out our plans for the future, feel free to comment here.
