APME 50 report: Key deadlines approaching

Many of the most active editors (serving on state boards) across the country will get this APME 50 update in their inbox over the next few days. Here it is earlier for blog readers. Don’t miss out on these APME programs.

APME 50 editor:

Deadlines are coming fast in APME, and we don’t want you to miss anything. Here’s a quick update for you:

Our 2 for 1 membership deal expires May 1. Join for $150 and bring along a colleague, in a deal that won’t be repeated soon.

What’s the benefit? Start with our prestigious APME Journalism Excellence Awards, also with a May 1 deadline. Get your entries in soon and save. Members pay a reduced rate of $50 per entry. We have new innovation categories this year covering college journalism, radio and television.

APME is proud to partner with the Local Media Foundation and offer 20 fully paid spots for reporters and editors to a symposium in Chicago on reporting the impact of the recession on mental health. These are provided through a McCormick Foundation grant. Deadline for applications is April 20.

Our next NewsTrain is in Miami, with a May 11 deadline. Our first NewsTrain of 2012 sold out in Phoenix. Don’t miss this one in south Florida.

Coming soon, our conference program for APME Nashville 2012 will be available. Save the dates: Sept. 17-19 and look for a great program. Membership benefit? You’ll pay only a $200 registration fee.

Thanks, and have a great spring.

Bob Heisse
APME president
