information from The Donald W. Reynolds Journalism Institute
The Donald W. Reynolds Journalism Institute is inviting industry professionals to the second Walter B. Potter Sr. Conference this fall and the price of admission is two successful ideas - proven winners that generated revenue, boosted readership or improved your operation. The Potter Conference will bring together community news executives and leaders at the Missouri School of Journalism for an exchange and dialogue of best practices that will help sustain local journalism, especially in small and rural markets.
The two-day event will be held November 20-21 at RJI in Columbia, Missouri. All participants will be permitted to bring up to three colleagues from their outlet or media group.
We're looking for 40 unique ideas, not 40 versions of the same idea. Once registration opens, you might wish to submit several ideas to increase your chances for participation.Those who make it to the conference will return home with access to all 40 (or more) innovations, including details on how to implement them at your organization.
Registration is now open and the application deadline is Nov. 3! Don't forget to apply via RJI's website.
