CONFERENCE SWEEPSTAKES: Win an Apple Watch, IPad Mini or gift card
Take home more than great ideas from the APME/ASNE/APPM conference this year. For a suggested donation of $10, you can get a ticket to the annual sweepstakes. All proceeds go to the APME Foundation to support association projects. It’s a great cause! Get your ticket at the conference from any APME board member.
GOING, GOING …. Auction items needed for annual conference
Be a part of the annual auction at the APME/ASNE/APPM conference this year -- donate good stuff, so we can raise big bucks!
Comb through your photo departments, your editorial cartoonist's stash, your bookshelves and your liquor cabinets for items you can donate to help a worthy cause -- adding to the APME Foundation funds that support such good causes as NewsTrain and our Community Public Service Journalism grant program.
Booze is always popular at the auction, as are historical photos, photos of celebrities and editorial cartoons. We love Harley jackets and weekend retreats at the beach or in the mountains.
We'll bid on tickets to sporting events (How about those Cavs tickets, George Rodrigue?!) and Broadway plays. We love licenses to the AP Stylebook electronic edition and books about journalism and journalists.
Give till it feels good! Please take a few minutes to fill out the auction donation form and return it as soon as possible: http://bit.ly/2016AuctionPledge

Attendees regularly rate NewsTrain’s training as 4.5 or higher, with 5 as highly effective and highly useful. “This is the best hands-on collection of practical sessions with knowledgeable ‘in-the-field’ instructors I’ve experienced,” said reporter Kelly Shiers about the Nova Scotia workshop in May.
In Murfreesboro, a committee of local journalists requested the cutting-edge sessions that are planned. They include:
· Making smart choices in digital storytelling,
· Growing audiences with Facebook Live, Periscope, Snapchat and Instagram,
· Using social media as powerful reporting tools,
· Shooting shareable smartphone video,
· Maximizing your smartphone for mobile newsgathering,
· Writing news for mobile,
· Creating simple graphics for mobile,
· Editing your own writing, and
· Producing data-driven enterprise stories off your beat.
Discounted rooms at $109 a night, plus tax, are available; the hotel offers free shuttle service to the workshop site.
Competitive diversity scholarships that cover the $75 registration fee are available for journalists, journalism educators and journalism students from diverse backgrounds. The scholarships are funded by the APME Foundation.
