APME announces legacy program

The Associated Press Media Editors has unveiled an APME Ambassadors program for editors who include the organization in their estate planning.

The goal, according to APME President Bob Heisse, is to attract at least 80 ambassadors by 2013, which is APME's 80th year. The program, he said, will expand the organization's fundraising and help ensure APME's future.

"What we're doing grows in importance each year for editors who work with fewer and fewer resources," said Heisse, executive editor of the Centre Daily Times in State College, Pa. "We have to stay strong to offer leading training through NewsTrain, AP-APME national reporting initiatives, First Amendment support and much more."

Making an estate donation is as easy as including APME in your will when it is written or revised, or adding a bequest through a codicil, or amendment to an existing will.

Further details will be provided in the fall APME magazine. For more information, contact Sally Jacobsen at
