All costs covered to attend this specialized two-day symposium in Chicago

The SNA Foundation and the Associated Press Managing Editors have been awarded a grant by The McCormick Foundation to conduct a specialized two-day reporting workshop. The symposium, part of McCormick's Specialized Reporting Institutes program, will educate community journalists on how to uncover local stories on the impacts of the current economic crisis on the American family.

The symposium will take a deep dive into this subject and will feature top speakers from the academic world, as well as journalists who cover highly-specialized aspects of this topic. The ultimate goal is to provide scholarship recipients with a host of tools and information to better cover the topic at a local level in their communities. Follow-up webinars with symposium attendees will also be part of this comprehensive learning experience.

Scholarship applications are due by February 25; click here to access the application form and information. The symposium takes place April 5 - 6 in Chicago (air, hotel and meals are included). Special thanks to the Sun-Times Media Group for hosting this event.

You’ll see attached to this article an advertisement that features the SNA leadership staff. You’ll also see it in upcoming editions of Suburban Publisher. This is a new campaign that I created after realizing that we offer a different proposition when it comes to association staffing today. I’ve noticed some organizations are leaning back in this area when it comes to industry experience. Leadership may not always be industry veterans – staff may not even have any newspaper experience. It’s not uncommon these days as some associations are bringing in other types of experience – those with nonprofits and fundraising for example. There’s no right or wrong way to run an association but I do think we do have a unique story to tell.
