The Catholic Social Ministry Gathering (CSMG) is a professional meeting of leaders and emerging leaders in Catholic social ministry from dioceses and diverse Catholic organizations. As such, the meeting is closed to the general public, and attendance is by registration only. We welcome attendance by pre-approved representatives of media organizations as observers of the Gathering. CSMG 2021 will occur virtually on Feb. 6-9.
All reporters are required to submit an application for accreditation to the CSMG media coordinator (below) in advance of attendance at any CSMG event or related event by a collaborating organization (e.g. sponsor events).
Media approved to cover CSMG should be aware that there is a system in place for requesting interviews with bishops, speakers, and presenters. Requests must be submitted in advance through the CSMG media coordinator (below).
CSMG accredited media must register by Feb. 8, 2021 using the registration instructions sent via email upon granting of accreditation.
All credentialed media must identify themselves as members of the media when interacting with speakers and participants.
Some CSMG sessions will be closed to media, as noted in the schedule and/or in announcements at the beginning of sessions.
Reporters are also asked to submit copies of printed articles, or links to online stories, to the CSMG media coordinator within one week of publication.
