Plan your inauguration coverage
With the deadline approaching to apply to be at the Capitol when President-elect Donald J. Trump is sworn in, leaders of two of the U.S. Senate press galleries overseeing credentials will be at the National Press Club this month to discuss logistics and answer questions.
The Dec. 13 program starts at 9:30 a.m. and will be held in the Murrow Room. The program is $5 for National Press Club members and $10 for other journalists.
RSVP using the form below.
Panelists will be Laura Lytle, director of the gallery serving daily press, and Justin Wilson, director of the periodicals gallery.
