Has your newsroom benefited from APME's NewsTrain over the years? Have you attended yourself?
NewsTrain has made dozens of stops around the United States and Canada since its inception in 2003 as a low cost, on-site journalism training program.
Think about how much has changed in our jobs in 10 years. Then think about how strong NewsTrain is in 2013, providing top level journalism training led by Michael Roberts.This year there have been stops in Springfield, Ill., and New York City; stops are planned this fall in Colorado Springs and Seattle.
The Associated Press Media Editors wants to keep NewsTrain on a strong financial path for the next decade.
To do that, we've started the NewsTrain Ambassador campaign and we're reaching out to journalists who've benefited. Can you give back in this, the 10th year of NewsTrain?
Make a donation of $100 or more and become a NewsTrain Ambassador. You'll receive a special memento at the APME conference (or via mail) and your name will appear in the APME News Magazine.
All donations are appreciated. APME is a non-profit, so all gifts are tax deductible.
Already, nearly $3,000 has been raised in this Ambassador campaign. Please consider helping journalists with a donation of any size to NewsTrain this summer.
To donate, please send a check made out to the Associated Press Media Editors and marked for NewsTrain to APME/NewsTrain, c/o Sally Jacobsen, Associated Press, 450 W@. 33rd St., New York, NY 10001. You can reach Sally at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for your consideration.
