APME UPDATE – Oct. 16, 2014
Bring affordable, customized training to your region
Apply to host a NewsTrain workshop
APME’s NewsTrain is looking for four lucky cities to host a NewsTrain workshop in 2015, its 12th year of providing high-quality, low-cost training to journalists where they live. Successful applicants help shape a one- or two-day workshop to the needs of journalists in their area.
NewsTrain attendees return to their newsrooms energized, inspired and with skills they can use right away. As one attendee tweeted this year: “Thought I was crazy to drive through night to get to workshop…One presenter down: would have walked here.”
What’s required to apply?
In addition to helping plan the program, the host committee secures a venue for the workshop, negotiates a discounted hotel rate, handles the catering and, most importantly, aggressively markets the workshop locally to achieve the attendance target of 100 journalists, journalism students and journalism educators. It receives $35 of each registrant’s $75 fee to cover its costs.
APME’s NewsTrain staff does the rest, including engaging top-notch trainers, organizing the program, providing online registration, delivering all training materials and marketing the workshop nationally.
For the topics NewsTrain workshops included this year, please see the slides and handouts at http://slideshare.net/newstrain. Your region’s workshop can include these topics or others your committee deems relevant.
Please get in your application by Dec. 10! Applicants will be notified early in 2015 of their status.
