WHCA Meets: Fewer Tables, Price Now $250

Notes from a meeting of the White House Correspondents’ Association…

*Fewer tables will be available per news organization at next year’s dinner. (Watch out. This year’s numbers were contentious enough, just ask former WHCA President Ed Chen, who was threatened with a lawsuit that was filed and “caused a lot of headaches,” Chen asserted.).

*CNN’s Chief White House Correspondent Ed Henry, WHCA prez-elect, (USA Today’s David Jackson is currently president; Henry is a board member who will assume the presidency in  August 2012.) gets members of the board to approve an increase of $25 for dinner ticket prices. Tickets now cost $250.

*The dinner will support a program that mentors inner city D.C. students.
