NewsTrain 2017: Be the host with the most
There's still time to apply to host a NewsTrain for your region of the United States or Canada next year! Why is it a big deal to host?
“It’s simply the best training ever. APME has a winning formula, combining the ‘workshop-in-a-box’ format with a customized training approach to meet the needs of the host region,” says Tina Ongkeko, managing director for member services, Newspapers Canada, and host committee chair in Toronto in 2012, Vancouver in 2014 and Halifax in 2016. “Novice reporters and senior management alike leave feeling inspired and rejuvenated about their profession. …The organization, program development and execution of NewsTrains are top-notch.”
Angie Muhs, executive editor, State Journal-Register, and host committee chair in DeKalb, Illinois, in 2015, said hosting a NewsTrain “gives you the opportunity to tailor high-quality training that will be accessible and affordable for your staff. It’s worth the investment of your time and effort.”
