The president’s budget will be released Monday morning, February 14. For those who are interested, the following briefing is open. The text is from the Department of Education:
The U.S. Department of Education will hold a briefing on the President’s Fiscal Year 2012 Budget Request Monday, February 14, starting at 12:00 noon in the Department Auditorium (400 Maryland Avenue, S.W., Washington, DC, 20202). Reservations are not required.
For security purposes, attendees are reminded to bring a photo ID and a business card. As in previous years, attendees are requested to enter the Department on the C Street side of the building (across from the McDonald’s), go through the magnetometers, and display their photo ID to the guards. However, instead of signing-in at the Front Desk, attendees will be directed to the auditorium’s rear doors, where they will be asked to submit a business card OR record their name, organization, and contact information on a sign-in sheet. At this point, the budget book and briefing materials will be distributed.
(Note: As many of you know, laptops are carefully screened by the security staff. For your convenience, if you will be carrying a laptop, please reply to this message by 12:00 noon Friday (February 11) with the laptop’s make, model, and serial number. We will pass that information onto the Front Desk. This will smooth your transition into the building, since anyone with a laptop will need to check-in at the Front Desk before proceeding to the sign-in station.)
If you are unable to attend in person, we will, for the first time, be live streaming the briefing. Beginning that morning, anyone wishing to listen to the briefing’s proceedings can go to http://www.ustream.tv/channel/education-department. No registration is required, although an online RSVP is appreciated.
We hope you can join us (either in person or online) on Monday!
