APME offers $800 lifetime membership
In recognition of its 80th anniversary in 2013, the Associated Press Media Editors is offering an $800 lifetime membership.
"APME is 100 percent focused right now on enhancing and adding to the benefits of being a member," said APME President Brad Dennison said. "It stands to reason that the process of becoming a member should be improved and simplified. Just moving away from calendar year-based membership automatically adds value."
Besides the $800 lifetime membership, APME is also offering other incentives to start or renew your membership, including:
• $25 off for each subsequent year paid in advance. For example, two-year membership paid in advance would be $275 instead of $300; three-year membership paid in advance would be $400 instead of $450.
• Two-for-one membership for broadcasters and educators for the next two years.
• $75 for associate members and retirees.
• True one-year membership from payment date instead of by calendar year.
• Sign up now and get an APME pin, a 2012 Nashville conference T-shirt and a Nashville poster.

"We are excited to offer lifetime memberships for the first time," Dennison said. "Eliminating having to keep up with yearly renewals and getting a return on a modest investment in a matter of a few years is a good deal."
APME membership offers:
• A discount to the 2013 conference in Indianapolis, including several notable speakers on subjects important to our membership.
• A reduced fee to be part of APME's prestigious journalism excellence contests, including awards for Public Service, First Amendment, Innovation, Watchdog, International Perspective and Convergence.
• Access to a creative and innovative network of online journalists.
• NewsTrain, our national traveling program to help frontline editors polish their editing and management skills has, since 2004, trained nearly 4,000 journalists from all 50 states.
• APME Sounding Board to AP on its coverage and operations.
• APME Communications, including an electronic newsletter and quarterly magazine.
• Small Newspaper Workshops: Since the majority of our members come from smaller dailies and broadcast outlets, we've improved our programs with them in mind. Numerous conference workshops are tailored especially for smaller newsrooms with limited staffs and budgets.
• Regional Networks: State AP member associations are organized into regions that work with the national organization on planning workshops and setting agendas.
