Dear Michele Catalano,
The Committee on Arrangements (COA) for the 2004 Republican National Convention invites you to cover this year’s convention from August 30 through September 2 in Madison Square Garden.
For the first time, bloggers will hold an on-site presence at the Republican National Convention called “Bloggers Corner.” Positioned near Radio Row, credentialed bloggers will have the opportunity to connect with delegates, guests and other surrogates for interviews, and to provide original content, including multimedia, to their audiences. Through this behind-the-scenes look at the convention’s proceedings and events, bloggers will play an important role in telling the story of the 2004 Republican Convention.
Bloggers Corner will be located in Madison Square Garden’s Theater Lobby in the corridor adjacent to Radio Row. Electrical outlets, tabled work stations and necessary hook-ups for laptop and other portable computers will be available for high-speed Internet and Intranet access. Main TV monitors will also be accessible in all convention common areas including Bloggers Corner and will carry closed circuit coverage of all floor activities.
Bloggers will be credentialed to move about all media areas with access to the Media Center and the news conference center for briefings.
Notification of attendance must be received by July 29, 2004. Please reserve your place by completing the attached form to Megan Mollmann ([email removed]).
Signage demarcating Bloggers Corner will be provided. Each blogger may bring, but is limited to one sign or placard to place at their individual stations. You will be notified on specific credential procedures as well as the dates and hours when credentials will be issued. No credentials will be mailed.
A copy of our Spring Media Walk-Through Handbook will be mailed to you upon the completion of your form. In the meantime, please feel free to contact our Communications Office at [number removed] with any additional questions.
We are very excited about your participation in the 2004 Republican National Convention.

Ya’ll will be so sick of politicians by Labor Day.
Thanks for signing in,
Now you can comment. (Click here should you choose to sign out.)
As you post your comment, please mind our simple comment policy: we welcome all perspectives, but require that comments be both civil and respectful. We also ask that you avoid the extensive use of profanity, racist terms (neither of which we consider civil or respectful), and other boorish language.
We reserve the right to delete any comment, and to prohibit you from commenting on this site, if we feel you have broached this policy. As a courtesy, we will first send you an email noting a violation so you understand the boundaries. This will occur only once, however, and should we ban you from our comment forums we expect that ban to be permanent.
We also will frown upon those who suggest that we ban other individuals for voicing unpopular opinions, should those opinions be voiced in a civil and respectful manner. The point of our comment threads is to provide a forum for spirited though civil and respectful discourse … it is not to provide a forum in which everyone will agree with your point of view.
If you can live by these rules, welcome aboard. If not, then we’re sorry it didn’t work out, and thanks for visiting The Command Post.
