GET INVOLVED: NEW APME COMMITTEE CONTACTS LISTED

If you'd like to get involved in the good work of APME or have questions about the committees, e-mail the committee chairs. Here's the new list!

Much of APME's work occurs throughout the year in the association's committees.

While individual goals change every year as new issues and opportunities arise, the priority remains the same: help APME assist busy editors and directors to become better managers leading trained, professional staffs who put out interesting, relevant newspapers, websites and broadcast reports.

The committees are a great way to get involved with the association and to move into an important, visible role in the news industry.
