It's a first: ASNE, APME join forces for 2014 convention

For the first time, the two premier news leadership organizations in North America are joining forces to present a joint convention.

The American Society of News Editors and the Associated Press Media Editors have reached an agreement that will bring the two influential groups together in September 2014 in Chicago. A joint convention has been discussed for years, but has never materialized until now.

"In this day and age it just makes sense to hold one terrific conference for leaders of news organizations,” said ASNE president David Boardman, dean of the School of Media and Communication at Temple University and former executive editor of the Seattle Times. "We've always had great conventions. This will be bigger, better and smarter than ever.”

ASNE and APME members include senior editors of news organizations, deans and journalism educators, members of journalism foundations and news executives.

"I’m thrilled the stars finally aligned to make this happen,” said APME President Brad Dennison, who is president of GateHouse Media’s Large Daily newspaper division. "The list of great news minds working on programming, the cost synergies, the drawing power for both audience and high-profile speakers – it’s an exciting proposition.”
