If you have a NewsTrain success story to share, send it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you’re looking to bring affordable, digital training to your newsroom in 2019, consider hosting one of APME’s NewsTrain workshops.
To experience the learning, morale boost and fun of a NewsTrain workshop in your town, the first steps are to put together a tentative host committee of representatives from local journalism organizations, and apply by April 30 at bit.ly/HostNewsTrain.
Successful host committees work hand-in-glove with the NewsTrain staff over six months to plan and promote their workshops. The skills taught are customized to the needs of journalists in your region and designed to be used immediately.
The host committee’s financial obligation includes supplying food for either a one-day or two-day workshop attracting 100. It should seek local sponsors to cover that cost, which can run $1,500 to $3,000. The host committee also markets the workshop regionally and secures a venue, usually a university site. APME engages the accomplished trainers.
The payback is smarter, more engaged and enthusiastic journalists, journalism students and journalism educators in your region.
“It’s simply the best training ever,” said Tina Ongkeko, managing director of member services for News Media Canada and host-committee chair for four NewsTrains. “The organization, program development and execution of NewsTrains are top-notch.”
Since 2003, Associated Press Media Editors (APME) has produced 88 NewsTrains in the United States and Canada, training more than 7,300 journalists.
Book now to meet your budget needs.
