DATES ANNOUNCED FOR NEWSTRAINS IN COLUMBUS, AUSTIN AND LAS VEGAS
APME’s popular NewsTrain will hold training workshops in Columbus, Ohio; Austin, Texas, and Las Vegas this year.
NewsTrain will be in Columbus, Ohio, on Sept. 20 with sessions on maximizing your use of social media, shooting better video stories and developing data-driven enterprise stories. Your instructors are:
· Mandy Jenkins, former managing editor of Digital First Media’s Project Thunderdome. She will demonstrate how to use social media as a powerful reporting tool. She’ll also offer tactics to establish your brand on social media, encourage community engagement, and measure how well your social media efforts are working.

· Jill Riepenhoff, projects reporter at The Columbus Dispatch. She will help you find and analyze data, enabling you to spot local enterprise stories on your beat, whether you cover government, sports, the arts, business or education.
Registration is just $75 for a full day of training, including hands-on exercises, two meals and snacks.

Do you have something you can offer?
APME and ASNE are joining forces for a live and silent auction to benefit both organizations during their joint conference Sept. 15-17 in Chicago.
An annual conference auction is a staple for APME and benefits the APME Foundation, which helps fund NewsTrain and other programs. ASNE will share the stage for perhaps the biggest auction to fund journalism initiatives in recent years.
The live auction – featuring vacation getaways and more – will be held during the opening night reception at the Tribune Tower. A small silent auction also will take place that night.
A larger silent auction – featuring donated books, regional gifts, jewelry, sports and event tickets and more – will be held during the conference at the Hyatt Regency, the conference headquarters.
