KICK OFF SUMMER BY REGISTERING FOR APME THIS FALL!
Celebrate the official kickoff of summer by signing up to go to the APME/ASNE News Leadership Conference in Philadelphia, set for Sept. 11-14! It will be September before you know it.
The conference opens with an evening reception Sunday, Sept. 11, at the landmark National Constitution Center, not far from the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall. A pre-conference workshop focused on newsroom transformation is Sunday afternoon for a limited number of participants. Attendees will also be able to attend events hosted by the Associated Press Photo Managers, which holds its annual conference in conjunction with APME and ASNE.
Our event hotel is the Philadelphia Marriott Downtown. The conference, which runs till noon Wednesday, includes:
· Keynotes by leading-edge thinkers and influences, including Marty Baron, executive editor of The Washington Post, who will speak about the transformational changes he has led in the newsroom.
· Panels and workshops on practices and tools to improve coverage and engagement, including workshop by The City University of New York’s CUNY Graduate School of Journalism to teach editors how to develop community-driven news products.
APPM offer speakers from news organizations across the country, from those doing community photojournalism to photojournalists making documentary films. One of the speakers is Brian Cassella, a staff photographer at the Chicago Tribune, talking about his series "The Next Day," which documents the day following fatal shootings throughout Chicago.
There's lots more, including a little baseball. The registration fee is $275 for members of ASNE and APME and $375 for nonmembers.
