White House Phone Briefings on Proposed Budget This Week

by Brenda Peluso

Thanks to our membership in the National Council of Nonprofits, the Maine Association of Nonprofits is relaying an invitation to attend any of a series of White House telephone conference briefings this week – starting TODAY – with Obama Administration officials to discuss the President’s just-released proposed FY2011 Budget. 

As you will see from the grid reprinted below, the briefings will cover specific topics of potential interest to different segments of the nonprofit sector. The times listed are Eastern Standard Time. In the past, these briefing calls typically have lasted about an hour, with the first half devoted to presentations by Administration officials and the second half reserved for questions. Please feel free to call in to learn more about the President’s budget proposal that the Administration is sending to Congress. 

The White House encourages people “to dial in a few minutes early to ensure participation in the entire call.” Also, the White House has indicated: “This call is for back ground information only and not intended for press purposes.”
